K&L diocese offer blesses salt to farmers

In solidarity with the farming community the Diocese of Kildare & Leighlin will be handing out salt blessed by Bishop Denis Nulty at the National Ploughing Championships in Co. Laois next week.

The blessed salt can be spread on the land or around the house or used in animal feed to invoke God’s blessing and protection. There will also be gifts of prayer cards and wristbands.

The diocese has invited Fr Peter McVerry SJ, Eamonn Meehan, Director of Trocaire, and Sr Rita Minehan from APT(Action to Prevent Trafficking) to give talks at their stand in the annual exhibition in Co Laois under the theme ‘Act Justly’.

Donations of non-perishable food items will also be collected for St Clare’s Hospitality Food Kitchenas part of a diocese wide collection from September 20-28.
