Unlocking the Possibilities of our Pastoral Areas:

All members of the Pastoral Area Councils are invited to a morning reflection on the many possibilities now open to parishes through the establishment of pastoral areas. Chaired by Bishop Dermot Farrell and in dialogue with Fr Albert McDonnell and some lay co-ordinators of pastoral groups from other Irish Diocese we will have an opportunity to reflect on how these groupings can best work together.

Venue:  St Kieran’s College on Saturday 26th. October from 11.00a.m. to 1.00p.m.   All welcome.

Parish Evenings:

Starting in Advent the Diocesan Retreat Team will host parish evenings in St Kieran’s College, or in your own parish.  These evenings are an opportunity for people to take time to reflect in the midst of our busy lives. The theme this year, taken from Laudato Si’,  for the retreats is “Praised be to you O Risen – Lord Alive in Every Creature”
