Parish Assembly meeting

March 14, 2019

The Parish Assembly is a group of parishioners who assist with the running and development of Glanmire parish. A new assembly is formed every 3 years. All parishioners are asked for nominations for the Parish Assembly; this nomination can be oneself or another parishioner. Nominees are invited to join the Parish Assembly.  The current assembly was formed in 2016. The chairman of the Parish Assembly is Peter Falvey, vice-chair is Tim Murphy with Claire Gibson as secretary. The full membership is Doris Murphy, Loughlin Ryan, Niamh Buckeridge, Linda Cashman, Carmel Cleary, Helen Harrington, Rachel Kelleher, Billy Meaney, Catherine McGovern, Catherine McPhillips, Maria O’Keeffe, Kathleen Twomey.  As priests of the parish, Fr. John Newman and Fr. Pat Nugent are automatically members of the Parish Assembly.

The Parish Assembly meets every month.

At the most recent meeting, we discussed Easter ceremonies. The Walk of the Cross will start at St Mary’s and All Saints this year and end at St Joseph’s. There will be light refreshments served afterwards in the Parish Centre. There was some discussion on the May procession as well.

There was further discussion on the rationalisation of Mass times and a rota agreed for the last round of communication on this.


The outgoing assembly was thanked, especially the officers Peter Falvey, Claire Gibson and Tim Murphy. Everyone wished the incoming assembly well. The new assembly will take effect after Easter.
