Diocesan and Parish Listening Process: On Monday 9th September a very successful meeting took place in Muntir na Tíre Hall Murroe to discuss the results of the recent research project in our parish. It was a revelation to discover that a great need was expressed by those in attendance to meet and talk about matters that are dear to the hearts and thinking of many in our parish community, for example, matters of Faith, Family, Youth and Community among others. A follow-up meeting is planned for this Monday 23rd September at 7.30 p.m. at the same venue. Your parish needs your participation. Please come along and bring a friend.
