It is the home of Buccaneers Rugby Club. Directions to the AGM venue are below. The AGM of the ACP is always an interactive, welcoming and meaningful event.
The theme of the 2017 AGM is
‘Facing the Future – What We Need To Do Now.’
Our guest speaker is Dom Mark Patrick Hederman.
Solicitor Robert Dore has been working for the ACP since shortly after it was founded in 2010. He has helped a great many members through difficult situations. Robert will attend the meeting, and we will acknowledge the great work he has done for us, and make a presentation to him.
The AGM agenda will outline initiatives being pioneered by the ACP to enhance the wellbeing of priests in Ireland. The meeting prioritises listening to the voices of priests. Please know that you are warmly welcome to attend.
The ACP will forward you three potentially helpful resources:

  • A summary of the issues raised by priests during the 2017 Regional Meetings organised by the ACP;
  • An ‘Information Card’ for Priests, outlining your rights, along with pertinent advice to assist you in your interactions with Church leadership and structures;
  • An appeal to you to help the ACP to thrive.

Please join us at our AGM on 07 November. The ACP is at your service.

    Hi guys,the date of the meeting makes it difficult for those of us who work in rural isolated areas, servicing several churches, to attend, as november masses take place during the first nine days of the month. Somthing to consider for next year maybe?

  2. Michael Brennan says:

    I agree with Ciaran Blake on the choice of week for the AGM. In an age when most resident priests attempt to be present with more than one Eucharistic Community in prayer; the fist week or so of November is a time when we especially spend time i ‘ndíl Chuimhne’ timpeall an ‘Bord Geal’ in at least 2 churches during the November Novena..
