Anniversary Mass in St Carthage's, Lismore

Courtesy of a correspondent, I have received a devout photograph from St Carthage's Cathedral: an early morning pontifical Low Mass, marking the anniversary of the first Mass offered therein, just as its founder, Jeremiah Doyle, the first Bishop of Lismore, celebrated it on the morning of the 24th of June, 1907, which was the 30th anniversary of his own ordination as a priest:

The same Mass, at the same hour, at the same altar, in the same Roman Rite.

Of your charity, pray for the repose of the soul of Jeremiah Doyle, Bishop of Lismore: "a great priest, who in his life propped up the house and in his days fortified the temple" (Ecclus l, 1).
