ENGINEER’S REPORT ON THE FLOOR OF CAHERCONLISH CHURCH – advises us to replace the present floor which has deteriorated in several places.

IRISH BISHOPS HAVE BEEN ORDERED BY POPE FRANCIS TO SET UP A NATIONAL SYNOD: What is a Synod? The word “synod” evokes the image of “walking together on the way”. For the Church it is a time-honoured way of working out together the “navigation map” for the Church at particular times. Synodality is about the whole People of God helping each other listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to the Church. Presently we have a top-down Church – Pope, Bishops, Priest, People. It is about creating a bottom-up Church – the People of God are on top. Pope Francis has emphasised that “it is precisely this path of synodality which God expects of the Church of the third millennium”. The Bishops have announced an initial submission phase of the Synodal Pathway - “Feedback, which should be no more than 300 words and submitted by Pentecost Sunday 23 May, ought to focus on the nature of the process for the consultation i.e., how we can best go about this initial phase of establishing the conversation, rather than on the prospective themes for the Synodal Pathway, which will be addressed in the next phase. At, on the new Synodal Pathway webpage , people are invited to offer feedback to the following question: What would be your preferred option for engagement in a conversation process about the Synod? The responses will be considered by the task group to be put in place by the bishops this summer to plan and oversee the first steps along the synodal pathway.

Presently our Archdiocese is engaged in dismantling the Deanery System (an outcome of ongoing Listening process) gatherings (6) of groups of priests in surrounding parishes basically implementing the wishes of the Bishop – a tops down model of Church. The Archdiocese wants to create bottom-up structures of people and priests working together – WITH priests handing over control to people. How do we do this? What other surrounding parishes can we work more closely with?

YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER DOING YOUR WEEKLY/ MONTHLY/YEARLY ENVELOPE ONLINE. The Archdiocese of Cashel and Emly has established a secure and easy system for parishioners throughout the diocese to make contributions to their parishes.(a) Go to Diocesan website -
