Notice for parishes:
We are pleased to announce the Blessed Carlo Acutis project for teenagers in the diocese of Cloyne, a covid-times initiative.

Renowned for a strong devotion to the Eucharist, to the Rosary and to the saints, Carlo created a website dedicated to cataloguing each reported Eucharistic miracle in the world. He was beatified in 2020 and is considered a good example of holiness to the youth in the digital age.
