Clogher Diocese in Dialogue – A journey into the future:
Bishop Larry Duffy is inviting all parishes to take part in a conversation to consider how we as a Church continue to sustain living parishes now and going into the future in Clogher Diocese. This conversation seeks understanding more than agreement; agreement will take time to achieve. Be assured, however, this is the beginning of a conversation which will be listened to and which will inform future planning. Meetings will be held during March to which you and fellow-parishioners are warmly invited.
The meeting involving our parish and others in this Pastoral Area will be held in the Hall at St Mary’s Church, Pettigo on Wednesday 11th March 2020 beginning at 7.30pm and to conclude by 9.30pm.
