Readers and Cleaners: Readers and Cleaners are needed to assist the present group who are doing great work reading at Mass and cleaning the Church weekly in the Holy Trinity Church, Durrow. The rota for Readers is two Masses every six months and the readings are given to you once we receive them in the Church.

The Rota for the cleaners is a couple hours once a week for a month and it reoccurs every four to five months depending on the number of cleaners. The number of cleaners has dropped in the past year and we appeal to anyone who has two hours a week in the morning for a month rota maybe twice a year to contact Angela Drennan or any member of the cleaners to get your name added to the list. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
Rome Pilgrimage: The Ossory Adult Faith Development group are leading a pilgrimage to Rome (24th to 29th of August 2020).

Anyone interested can contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (056) 7753624.
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. Meet in St Kieran’s College on Saturday 26th October from 11am until 1pm. All are most 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”
