St Camillus

The Order of Ministers of the Sick (Camillians) have begun celebrating the 400th anniversary of the death of  their founder, St Camillus (1614 - 2014).

Among many special events planned this year is the public exposition and  pilgrimage of the Heart of Saint Camillus, normally kept in the General House in Rome, to the provinces where the Order is present.

On Friday, the relic was flown from Rome to Ireland, where it will stay for the entire month.  The first Mass  of the tour was held at the Chapel of the St  Camillus Nursing Centre in Killucan, on Saturday.  For more information see: www.orderofstcamillus.ie/
