Venerable John Sullivan to be beatified on 13 May in Dublin

Venerable Fr John Sullivan SJ

It has just been announced that Fr John Sullivan SJ, the Irish Jesuit who was ordained alongside Fr Doyle on 28 July 1907, will be beatified at 11am on 13 May in Gardiner Street Church in Dublin. This will be the first beatification ever to take place in Ireland.

This is excellent news. The Church in Ireland needs more saints, especially more contemporary examples of holiness.
