Knockanure Notes — 6th March, 2024

PARISH Gathering; in his Pastoral Letter, “Moving Forward in Hope”, Bishop Ray invites all parishioners to participate in a consultation process to shape the future of pastoral areas and parishes. A consultation gathering will be held in our parish of Moyvane/Knockanure on Tuesday 5th March 2024 at 7.30pm in the Marian Hall, Moyvane. As preparation for the gathering, you are invited to reflect on the following three questions: 1. Without the presence of a priest to lead and coordinate, what aspects of parish life could we, the laity, take responsibility for and organise ourselves? 2. Where do we see scope for cooperation with neighbouring parishes in our pastoral area? 3. Given what Bishop Ray has said about reducing numbers and increasing age, what do we want to say to priests?.

RAMBLING HOUSE will be held at Knockanure on the First Thursday of the month, and Clounmacon Rambling House on 9th of March.
