As part of the on-going Listening Process in the parish and diocese, we had a very productive

The next step will be a further Deanery Gathering on Wednesday, 15th May, in Galbally Parish Hall, 8.00pm. There, we will present to the neighbouring parishes the fruits of our discussions and, in turn, hear their findings.
