New Pastoral Area: The recent Diocesan Changes for the Killaloe Diocese came into effect from last weekend. These changes, together with new guidelines for Pastoral Ministry, will entail some significant changes over the coming months for all our parishes. A new Pastoral Area for the Peninsula sees the four parishes of Kilballyowen (Cross), Carrigaholt, Kilkee and Doonbeg now being administered by 2 Co-PPs – Fr. Michael Casey & Fr Gerry Kenny – with the assistance of Fr. Joe Haugh and Fr. Paddy Culligan. In the Autumn Parish Pastoral Councils will begin the work of planning to implement an effective pastoral support service to all parishes in our Pastoral Area. FUNERAL ARRANGEMENT DIRECTIVES: Priests responsible for funeral arrangements in new Pastoral Area are Fr. Michael and Fr. Gerry.

New Volunteer Ministries in the Killaloe Diocese
The Diocese of Killaloe is developing openings for two new lay volunteer ministries in the Diocese. Training programmes for the Ministry of Catechist and the Ministry of Pastoral Care will begin in the Autumn. These new ministries, open to women and men, will be of interest to those already involved or those wishing to be more involved in the life of their local Church community. They will involve lay people working in side by side with priests in key ministries in parishes and pastoral areas. Brochures are available at the back of the Church or on the Diocesan Webpage. Further information and application forms can be found at https://www.killaloediocese.ie/ministry-opportunities-in-the-diocese-of-killaloe/

Protect all families with your loving care, especially those for whom we now pray (n…) Increase our faith, strengthen our hope, keep us safe in your love, make us always grateful for the gift of life we share. This we ask, through Christ our Lord, Amen.
