Ashbourne-Donaghmore Parish Congratulates Ephrem Feeley
Tuesday, June 6th 2017

Parish Organist, Ephrem Feeley’s composition ‘A Joy for all the World’ has been selected as the official hymn for World Meeting of Families 2018. The hymn found its inspiration in the document Amoris Laetitia – the Joy of Love, written in 2016 by Pope Francis following the Synods on the Family held the preceding two years. A substantial portion of the document is a treatment of the famous Hymn to Love found in 1 Corinthians 13. and our composer felt that his piece should begin with this wonderful Pauline text. Congratulations to Ephrem on this marvelous honour! We pray God’s continued blessings on his music ministry.
