IMEALL BOIRNE CLUSTER MEETING

A very well attended cluster meeting took place in Crusheen on last Wednesday night to plan the response in the four parishes to the reduction to three priests in the nine church areas. Key issues discussed included Sunday and Weekday Masses, Receiving Funerals, Lay Led Liturgies, Parish and Cluster Administration and Sacramental Preparation.

It was proposed that weekend Masses in the nine churches will be reduced to seven Masses and two lay led liturgies each weekend.

No decision was made on how this would be organised and people are asked to discuss among themselves during the coming weeks what the best arrangement of these Masses might be.

A final decision will be made at a follow up meeting on September 7th at 8.00 pm in Crusheen.

It was agreed that all four parishes would combine so that a solution could be achieved.

On the Road again.23 year old Conrad McCullough from Dysart, a member of the Burren Cycling Club, of which his mother and father, Breda and Brendan, are also members, cycled the Ring of Kerry for the ninth year last June. His most recent cycling exploit was the Tour de Munster charity cycle, where he joined the cycle on the route between Killaloe and Kilrush in the company of cycling legend, Sean Kelly and 120 cyclists, raising funds for Down Syndrome. He was supported by three members of The Burren Cycling Club and is an inspiration - particularly to families who have children with Down Syndrome, showing them that with the right support this condition need not limit them.

Thought for the Week

Fear less, hope more. Eat less, chew more,

Whine less, breathe more. Talk less, say more,

Hate less, love more. And all good things will be yours.

(Swedish Proverb)

 

LAND REQUIRED:

A need to develop the Parish graveyards in Dysart and Ruan was discussed recently at a Parish Council meeting.  In the absence of acquiring suitable land close to the existing graveyards, a site located midway, which would be accessible to both sides of the Parish, would also be welcome.

If you have a suitable plot, and would be interested in donating or selling same to the Parish, please contact Fr. Pat (086 2612124) or any member of the Parish Council at your convenience.
