Image TitleHonan chapel: detail of the pipe organ
DescriptionSince 2001, Rev. Seosamh A. Ó Cochláin, Dean of the Honan Chapel and the chaplaincy team have greatly fostered and expanded the ministry of music in the Honan Chapel. In 1999, during the chaplaincy of Rev. Fr. Pádraig Corkery, a pipe organ was installed. This replaced a smaller harmonium and reflected the greater role the ministry of music played in the post Vatican II liturgy. The organ was built by Kenneth Jones, Bray, Co.Wicklow. Music plays a central part in the celebration of the liturgy in the chapel. Sunday liturgy is accompanied by invited choirs. There is sung morning prayer during Advent and Lent. The chapel also hosts concerts throughout the year. A specially commissioned Honan Mass, composed by John O’Brien, was celebrated in the chapel on Holy Thursday, April 13th 2006,
