Parish Pastoral Council

In the recently published Pastoral Plan for the Diocese, Bishop Alan is expecting every parish to have a Pastoral Council. There will be a series of meetings starting this Tuesday 27th September at 7.00pm in St. Patrick’s Centre, Donegal Town, to begin the process (we will be joining parishes from this deanery and the southern one). I would be grateful if you give it some consideration and let me know if you are interested in being part of these meetings to set up a pastoral council here.

Ministers of the Word and Eucharist

In the past, some of you may have been Ministers of the Word (Readers) and Eucharist. I would be delighted if you would like to take up those ministries again. Also there may be others who would like to volunteer for these ministries. Please let me know at the Parish email address or call me.

A Word of Thanks

“A heartfelt thanks to everyone who made my time in Ardara such a lovely experience. I appreciate all the Mass Cards, cards and in person greetings that I received and for those who attended the farewell Mass and celebrations that followed. God bless you all.”

Fr. Johnny
