|ST. JOSEPH'S YOUNG PRIESTS SOCIETY|
Olivia Taaffe established the society’s work in Ireland in 1895. The purposes of the society are to promote vocations to the priesthood and religious life, to promote the vocation of the laity, to foster an understanding and love of the Mass and to assist financially in the education of students for the priesthood.
The society arranges prayer meetings, vigils, pilgrimages, seminars, and retreats and encourages regular prayer for vocations. Students are supported spiritually and assisted financially by the Society from the member’s contributions.
The Dundalk branch (under the direction of its president Mrs Maura Gerrard) meets on the first Wednesday of each month in John Boyle O’Reilly Hall, Clanbassil Street, Dundalk at 7.30 p.m. (exception of August, January and February). We also have a Holy Hour on the first Friday of each month held in the Convent of Mercy, Convent Chapel at 7 p.m.
