Red Wednesday Appeal

    November 22, 2017 all-day
    Armagh Cathedral

    “Aid to the Church in need” invites us to join on Wednesday 22 November to light up our Churches and wear something red as we remember Christian martyrs and those who have died for their faith. On that day, St Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh will be a blaze of red and people are asked to wear something red (a sweater, a cardigan, a jacket, a scarf or a tie) as a symbolic reminder of all those Christians who have suffered and died for their Christian faith over the years. Many landmarks will be lit in red on that day in Ireland and throughout the world as we remember the sacrifice of those great people and those wonderful martyrs. On that day, all who have died for their faith will be remembered at different times and there will be a special Prayer Vigil in St Patrick’s Cathedral on the eve of Red Wednesday when the red lights will be turned on. Further details in the coming weeks but we invite everyone to get behind this worthy campaign.
