In celebration of the 150 years of the Redemptorist devotion to the icon of Our Lady Perpetual Help a Jubilee Pilgrimage is underway with a copy of the icon to visit all 26 Cathedrals in Ireland.
The original icon Icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help was presented to the Redemptorists for veneration by Blessed Pope Pius IX in 1865 in their newly built church in Rome. The Holy Father game the Redemptorists a mandate to promote the devotion of Our Lady of Perpetual Help throughout the world.
