Bishop celebrating family with a diocesan picnic

Bishop Fintan Monahan has invited families from all across the Diocese of Killaloe to join him this Sunday for a Family Picnic Day.

The event will take place in the Showgrounds in Ennis, from 2pm to 6pm, and admission to the picnic day is free.

The event is being organised by the Killaloe Diocesan Youth Council, in conjunction with the World Meeting of Families.

While there will be some limited catering at the event, families are encouraged to bring their own picnic baskets and there will be prizes for the best turned out ones.
There will also be lots of entertainment to suit all the generations, in terms of live music and family-friendly activities.

Welcoming families to the event, Bishop Monahan said, “I look forward to the coming together of all the generations to celebrate and rejoice in all that it means to be a family. It is a wonderful preparation for when Pope Francis joins us for the World Meeting in Dublin in August. As the joy builds in anticipation of his visit, we hope to reflect that same joy in our coming together on May 6. Let’s celebrate family.”

Bishop Fintan Monahan is hosting a family picnic at the Showgrounds on Sunday.
