Parish Contribution to Syria and the Philippines

untitledBishop Kieran O’Reilly invited the people of the Diocese to be as generous as possible in supporting the emergency Trócaire collection being taken up at all Masses in the Diocese for The Philippines and Syria on 16-17 November 2013.

The damage from Typhoon Haiyan is catastrophic. Caritas Philippines estimate that over 10,000 people have been killed and 600,000 have been displaced from their homes. The United Nations estimate that almost 10 million people have been affected.

Bishop Kieran O’Reilly is encouraging the people of the Diocese to be as generous as possible.  “Our support for our brothers and sisters in such great need is an essential expression of our faith. Trócaire will be working closely with many Irish Missionaries working in the region to provide aid for the most afflicted people.” 

To date the parish community in Coolmeen-Cranny have contributed €1,929 to this special appeal.

Builders of Hope – Killaloe Diocesan Plan

Builders of Hope – Pastoral Plan Diocese of Killaloe 2013-2020 will guide the work of our diocese and our parishes during the next seven year.  The title is taken from the words of Pope Francis ‘Don’t be scared.  Dare to have fabulous plans.  I encourage you to not  be afraid to dream,  to have great ideals,  to be builders of hope.’ The plan is the fruit of the listening process that took place in our diocese over the last two years.

Bishop Kieran O Reilly will launch the plan for our cluster of parishes on Monday 25 November at 8pm in Bellbridge House Hotel, Spanish Point. Fr Brendan Quinlivan will present the main points of the plan at the launch. Everybody interested in the future of our Church and faith is welcome to attend the launch.
