Annual General Meeting , 01 October, 2.00 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. Hodson Bay Hotel, Athlone,

Just a reminder that our AGM is on October 1st in Hodson Bay Hotel from
2.00 -5.00pm.The theme is : The Vocations Crisis: will clustering work?
We believe that this issue is of compelling interest to the Catholic Church
in Ireland and of particular interest to an ageing and diminishing Irish
priesthood. It is imperative that, rather than wringing our hands in
frustration, that realistic and workable proposals around priesthood be
discussed with a view to sustaining our parish faith-communities.
As a preparation for our discussion, we commend to our members two articles
from the September Furrow, On the Edge  by Donagh O’Meara and The Last Priests in Ireland by Donald Cozzens, which map out the context for our discussion. We
would encourage as many of our members as possible to attend the AGM.
