Final Reminder: How to Participate in the Foundation Day Celebrations at Baggot Street on 11 December 2016 via Livestream

Dear Sisters, Associates, partners-in-Ministry and partners-in-Mercy,

Greetings on the eve of the MIC celebration of Foundation Day!

A reminder that you can join here on the livestreaming page with the congregation gathered for the Prayer Service at Baggot Street at 3pm (Dublin time) tomorrow, Sunday, 11 December. You can check the time (and date) the livestream will start in your area by clicking here.

The Baggot Street ritual is adapted from that prepared by Sheila Carney rsm (Americas). It includes a Renewal of Commitment.

We recommend, if you haven't already done so, that well beforehand you test on the device you will be using that you can see the livestream download clock on the livestreaming page. We also suggest that you be online 10 minutes before the start of the ceremony ready to participate.

To aid your prayerful participation, the following booklets are available for download:

A4 two page spread (6pps) (PDF); A4 single page scanned version (12pps) (PDF)

The comment functionality will be available on the livestreaming page so you can post a message during/after the Livestream.

The video of the Prayer Service will be archived on the livestreaming page for later viewing by those for whom the live streaming occurs at an inconvenient hour.

¡Feliz Día de Fundación! Happy Foundation Day!
