Diocesan Assembly

Delegates: The journey to the Diocesan Assembly announced by Bishop Francis Duffy has started. It will be largely parish based. The first meeting of delegates will be in St. Mel’s College, Longford on 14th September. During this meeting the delegates will be invited and supported to do two things:  

Firstly, to listen to a small group of people in their own parish about their experiences of life and hopes for the church. Many of these groups will not be regular church goers. Secondly, to meet with their parish pastoral council about its views on what should be on the agenda for the Diocesan Assembly.

The delegates will be helped to arrange these meetings and to report back on them for the 2nd meeting of delegates , which will be held in November.  A summary of all the reports will be published on the Ardagh and Clonmacnois website and the themes for the Assembly will be drawn from this Report.  The Assembly event is on 9th and 10th May, 2020.  It will be followed by a pastoral plan which will be implemented in the parishes. 

“They (lay people) must no longer be viewed as ‘collaborators’ of the clergy but truly recognized as ‘co-responsible’ for the Church's being and action….”  (Pope Benedict, 26 May 2009)

If you would be prepared to take part in this process as a Parish Delegate please contact Fr. Pat , Fr. Sean or any member of the Pastoral Council.

Seeing your life through the Lens of the Gospel

1.  Today’s gospel brings us right to the heart of what a Christian life involves: love of God and love of neighbour. Jesus tells us that having life both now and in the future is the fruit of living in a spirit of love. How have you experienced love given and received as a source of life and vitality?

2.  With media today we are brought face to face with suffering, poverty and hunger so vast that it can engender a feeling of helplessness and hopelessness. The parable challenges us about how we react when we come face to face with a person in need. We may sometimes try to avoid getting involved. Recall when you overcame this reaction and reached out to help. What did that do for you, and for the other person?

3.  Bring to mind the people who have been an inspiration to you by the care and attention they have given to others.
