Service of Remembrance

Saturday 14th October 2023

Book your place for the Annual Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving

The Irish Kidney Association’s 38th Annual Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving for organ donors, transplant recipients and their families will be held on Saturday the 14th of October 2023 at 2.00pm in the Cathedral of Christ the King, Bishop's Gate Street, Commons, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, N91 EF82.

We ask that all attendees be seated by 1.50pm for the Service beginning at 2pm.

The service will be followed by a light lunch. This year in order to ensure a pleasant experience for everyone and reduce food waste we are asking people to register their interest in attending and let us know their dietary preferences.

The Cathedral can accommodate 1,800 people. As this is the first time in four years we are holding a physical service, demand is likely to be high for places so please book early.
If demand for places is higher than the capacity of the church, a rationing system will then apply.

The Service will be recorded by Kairos for broadcast on RTÉ One TV and RTÉ Radio 1 Extra on Sunday, November 5th at 11.00am.

In light of the expected large attendance, we respectfully request that if you are experiencing any respiratory or COVID-related symptoms, you refrain from attending the Service. This measure is aimed at safeguarding the health of all attendees, many of whom have compromised immune systems. Your understanding is greatly appreciated.
