Tonight, Maureen reflects on the importance of the contribution of staff to the mission and ministry of Lough Derg. It is their dedication that ensures the welcoming pilgrim experience that Lough Derg is renowned for. We invite you to join with Maureen in praying for all deceased staff of Lough Derg. Blessings
Third November Reflection – narrated by Maureen:
Welcome is the first of our Lough Derg values. We sincerely hope that every pilgrim to Lough Derg experiences that welcome from all staff that they meet: at reception, on the boats, in the kitchen, the shop, First Aid or the basilica. The pilgrim experience could not be as it is without a dedicated team of staff, a dedication which has been particularly evident during the current pandemic.
And so tonight we pray for all deceased staff of Lough Derg. We give thanks for their commitment and dedication and pray that the peace of their heavenly home is a just reward for their contribution to the mission and ministry of Lough Derg.
Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them; may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
