The Dublin Diocesan Archives have a new exhibition on the role of the Catholic priests and nuns in the 1916 Rising.
This exhibition takes you into the heart of the fighting during the Easter Rising, where Catholic priests risked their lives to minister the sacraments to the wounded and dying. It examines the crucial acts of the nuns and clergy, as they responded to the immediate needs of the hungry and displaced by providing them with much-needed food and shelter.
The exhibition, Ministry, Advocacy and Compassion: The Catholic Church and 1916, is being held at St. Kevin’s Chapel in Dublin’s Pro-Cathedral. It is now open to all visitors, 1.30-5.30pm daily, until the end of the year. Admission is free.
