The formation of our first Pastoral Council
The fact that a Parish Pastoral Council was to be set up was first announced in October 2004. For many years prior to that date, there had been in existence a ‘Board of Consultors’ who did pretty much what the Council does except that it was appointed whereas the Pastoral Council has been elected for a specific term of office. The current situation, therefore, regularises the council’s existence and makes it more open and accountable.
During February of 2004 a series of seminars, open to all, were held in the Parish and out of that was born the Parish Pastoral Council which was formally commissioned at a special Blessing
Ceremony performed by Bishop Fiachra O’Ceallaigh during the Vigil Mass on the Feast of Corpus Christi, May 20th 2005.
