Virtual Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving

The Irish Kidney Association’s 1st virtual and 35th Annual Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving for organ donors, will be broadcast on RTÉ One and RTÉ Radio One Extra on Sunday, 15th November 2020 at 11am. Much of the production has already been recorded by Kairos Communications under the direction of producer Fr. Finbarr Treacy.

The inter-church Service, which has already been pre-recorded at Newman University Church, Dublin 2, will include a message from the Irish Kidney Association Patron President of Ireland Michael D. Higgins, a Homily by Archbishop Michael Jackson and a Reflection by Archbishop Martin.

In previous years the Service has drawn a congregation of 2000 from all over Ireland to Corpus Christi Church in Dublin 9. Due to restrictions around Covid-19, a virtual Service will be held this year, for the first time, and we hope that it will reach an even larger audience than before, from home and abroad, who wish to honour the special people who have donated their organs so that others might live.

We would like to invite you to take part in the Service of Light ceremony at home by lighting a candle in memory of deceased donors who gave the gift of life.

We are confident that this alternative Service will be truly special and appreciated by all who tune into it. For more information, see our Autumn 2020 Support Magazine here or view the official invitation here.
