The page has been live since 2012 but it has seen a massive surge in interest over the past few days after it created a special Mass event for this Sunday - in the same way that people use Facebook event pages to organise parties, gigs and festivals.

People have been flooding the page with Mass-related memes and, naturally, plenty of Father Ted quotes.
