The request to take the ‘novena selfies’ was made to the ten thousand people who go daily to St Gerard’s novena in Dundalk.
Now the Facebook page of the Redemptorist’s church is being inundated with selfies from old and young alike.
The novena is organised by Fr Michael Cusack who has embraced social media – last month he uploaded his comical ‘ice bucket’ challenge where he disrobed from his priestly garb to reveal Bermuda shorts.
Now he has asked the 90 thousand people, some who travel long-distances to the church, to take the selfies and post them on the Facebook page of the Redemptorists in Dundalk.
Fr Michael gave the go ahead for the selfies and said the idea came from Matthew Cregan (27), a former technical director at the Gaiety Theatre who is now a student for the priesthood with the Redemptorists in Dundalk.
