Ardagh and Clonmacnois Diocesan Assembly - Call for submissions

Have you views on what are the most important issues facing the church in the coming years and how it should respond? Would you like these views to be considered in the preparation for a diocesan assembly which will take place in Longford on 9 & 10 May, 2020? Some 250 delegates - lay people, religious and clergy - representing the diocese of Ardagh and Clonmacnois will gather then to agree on a direction for the diocese for the coming years.

After an initial meeting this September the delegates are now engaged in a listening and consultation process in their local areas to identify what the priority issues for the Assembly should be. The results of this process will be summarised and presented at the next delegate meeting in November. There a decision will be taken on what priority issues will be brought to the Assembly.

Interested individuals and groups, whether part of the church or not, are invited to also forward submissions. Please tell us what issue you think should be a priority for the Diocesan Assembly and why. Please keep your submission to one page and forward before the end of October to assembly@ardaghdiocese.org

Seeing your life through The Lens of the Gospels

1.  The cure of the lepers is not just a physical cure, it also brought the people healed back from exclusion into the community. Perhaps you have experienced the movement from exclusion to inclusion. What was it like for you to be accepted once again when you had felt excluded?

2.  Who were the ‘Jesus people’ for you who brought about this change? For whom, and how, have you been able to do this? Perhaps by healing a rift with a friend, or by listening to the opinion of someone you had dismissed out of hand, or by opening the door to another in some other way? 3.  Some people work hard at breaking down barriers in society, seeking inclusion for those who find themselves labelled as lepers. Where have you seen this happening? Who has been doing this kind of work? Where is the good news in such action? 4.  When we do good for another, we may not do it for the thanks we hope to get, yet it can hurt when no gratitude is shown. How have you experienced the positive effects of thanks given and received?
