Conall Ó Cuinn SJ is working on the Galway Cathedral Novena at the moment. The theme of the Novena this year is ‘A Life Worth Living: Finding the Key to Happiness’, and the Redemptorist director, Fr Michael Cusack, says he hopes these days will give people the chance “to examine the reality of their lives and find a positive context for dealing with the issues which we all face”. This is the first time that the Redemptorists have asked a Jesuit to work with them in preaching the Novena. There are six sessions a day, with large crowds attending them all. Conall preaches three sessions every second day, hears confessions, and celebrates some of the Masses. For full details of the Novena, click here.
