On Tuesday 11th February we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, a very special Feast Day in our parish as our local hospital is named in her honour.
On Friday 14th February we celebrate the feasts of Sts. Cyril & Methodious. Two brothers who translated Liturgical Texts into Slovenic languages and invented the Cyrillic languages still currently used in Eastern Europe to this day. They preached in widely in Eastern Europe and returned to Rome where Cyril died on 14th February 869.
Methodious after his brother’s death worked hard to further the spread of the Gospel. In the complicated politics of the time, he suffered much from attacks from his enemies, but was always supported by the popes. He died on April 6th 885. Cyril and Methodious are patron Saints of Europe. Feast Day in our parish as our local hospital is named in her honour.
