From 8 to 9 pm on Tuesdays October 26th and November 2nd  the Elphin Diocese’s Pastoral & Faith Development Services’ Office will host the above two-session seminar via Zoom.

Our guest presenter will be Dr. Evie Monaghan, a member of the Historical Commission for the Cause of Canonisation of Frank Duff (see more information below).

Frank Duff, founder of the Legion of Mary, was a man renowned for his commitment to lay participation in the life of the church. Evie’s presentations will introduce Frank Duff from a historical perspective in the context of his Cause for Canonization.  She will look at his life story, the foundation of the Legion and Duff’s principles for the lay apostolate in both a local and international context.

Both presentations, each c. 35 minutes, will be followed by opportunities to engage in discussion, pose questions and offer comments. 

We shall also begin and conclude with moments of prayer.
