UPCOMING EVENTS

ZOOM CENACLES

Due to the difficulties in holding face-to-face cenacles in many places due to COVID-19 restrictions, the MMP is conducting four internet Cenacles each week:

  • a zoom Cenacle with Fr Donal McIlraith on SATURDAYS at 5pm (Sydney time). Fr Donal is the priest responsible for the MMP in Oceania (these cenacles are limited to 100 participants when ‘live’, so if you would like to participate ‘live’ please email the MMP (info@mmp-oceania.net) to receive an invite).
  • a zoom Cenacle with Fr Andrew Grace on Wednesdays at 4.45pm (Sydney time). Fr Andrew is the priest responsible for the MMP in Australia. Participants are joining remotely into a cenacle being prayed by local members in the Sacred Heart Church in Griffith NSW). To join-in, the link is https://us02web.zoom.us/j/6583562187?pwd=dnpMT2o1WTZCZitOdUR0bk51WHM3dz09 (or use Meeting ID: 658 356 2187 Passcode: MqK1Zq).
