Tomorrow’s Parish? – Have your say!
The Diocese of Kerry invites you to share your thoughts on the future of parish. Through a series of one-night meetings being held in different venues throughout the diocese, all are invited to share how they imagine the parish of tomorrow can thrive, given the changing society in which we live. As the number of priests in parish ministry decrease, the diocese faces many challenges. See dioceseofkerry.ie for more info. Meeting will take place in Benner’s Hotel, Dingle on Thursday March 26th at 8pm. All welcome.

LENT 2020: Lent is a season that has a great appeal for many people. There are still the things we like to give up or to do for Lent. However, for some of us, the good intentions on Ash Wednesday don’t carry us through to Easter Sunday. This year the Liturgy group has adapted a program which has been used by some other parishes. Each week, we will focus on a different theme: This week we focus on the Exposition of The Blessed Sacrament and on Friday March 13th we will have Exposition from 5.30pm, finishing with Benediction just before 7.30pm Mass in St Mary’s Church. Copy of our Lenten Program is available at the back of all 3 churches.

The Permanent Diaconate: The diocese of Kerry is seeking candidates who feel they may have a calling to be permanent deacons. The diocese already has six deacons. The hope is to begin a “come and see” programme next autumn. Any interested candidates should contact Fr Michael.
