Results of the Diocesan and Parish Listening Process

Yes, you will recall taking part in the Research Project in the Murroe/ Boher Parish under Fr. Martin Hayes late 2017 and throughout 2018 in the remainder of the diocese. The future of the church at parish and diocesan levels was the subject of the study. The results are published and ready for discussion. A meeting to do this will take place on Monday 9th September in Muintir Na Tíre Hall, Murroe at 7.30 p.m. Your interest in and attention to this ground-breaking research will be much appreciated. Our parish and the future of our faith community have much to gain through dialogue, open discussion, creative thinking and prayer. We can only do this by coming together to express our immediate needs and desires for the future, something each participant in the research has already done in response to the research questions. Please feel free to talk to Fr. Loughlin Brennan P.P. for any further information you need. Your parish needs your participation.
