Important up-date on Parish Restructuring & Renewal – February 2024.
In the past week, Bishop Michael and priests of the Diocese of Galway, Kilmacduagh & Kilfenora, togeter with a number of delegates from the Diocese of Clonfert along with lay-staff from both Diocesan Offices, met in Co. Clare to discuss and decide on the next steps in our ongoing process of parish renewal and restructuring in the Diocese of Galway, Kilmacduagh & Kilfenora.
The gathering explored and acknowledge the challenges facing faith communities across the Diocese. Parishes now stand at a crossroads, where old structures and old ways of doing things are often no longer viable. A new version is required for which new steps urgently need to be taken. Those present expressed energy and openness for thsi very significant task. Conversations will need to be had with parishioners on how new groupings of parish might be created and maintained to enable fiath communities across the diocese to actively work together, to share resources and to cooperate closely at all levels. A group of parishes can do more together than they could do on their own.
New Norms for Parish Pastoral Councils and Parish Finance Committees were published and an invitation is soon to be issued to each parish to resonstitute these important bodies. A programme of formation for participants in these Parish Pastoral Councils & Parish Finance Committees will be offered. Bishop Michael plans to meet members in their respective parish groupings in the coming months to begin the necessary conversation.
In hsi closing remarks to the gathering, Bishop Michael said: “I am convinced that the God who guided us in the past is now prompting us and provoking us. He is “doing something new” – inviting us to step into a bright and hope-filled future. I compliment those present for your input here these last days. I woul like to thank all those who made it possible.”
