Cemetery Sunday Templeboden July 1st
The annual blessing of the graves took place in glorious sunshine on Sunday July 1st 2018. Mass was celebrated by Fr Richard Behan whose family originally came from the Lacken area.
Templeboden is the site of the earliest church in Lacken. It was built in the 16th century by Bishop Boden in gratitude to the people of Lacken who offered shelter when he was being pursued by authorities. The granite baptismal font in Lacken Church was taken from Templeboden.
Many thanks to all who helped to prepare for this ceremony:- to the Cemetery committee, those who prepared the altar and plan the liturgy and music.
Afterwards the congregation were invited to a welcome cup of tea & refreshments in Lacken Community Centre.
