Parish Assembly meeting

October 1, 2021

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 2019. The chairman of the Parish Assembly is Loughlin Ryan, vice-chair is Rosaleen Murphy with Catherine McGovern as secretary. The full membership is  Attracta Burns, Niamh Buckeridge, Mirinda O’ Keeffe, Helen Harrington,  Ger Hayes, Maria O’Keeffe and 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 our most recent meeting, Fr John opened the meeting with a vote of sympathy to Fr Pat Nugent on the recent death of his mother.

We discussed the return of cantors, musicians and altar servers to Mass over the next short while.

We discussed having Litury of the Word ceremonies at morning mass times during the weeks when the priest of the parish are absent at Diocesian retreat and Diocesian meetings.


Baptism are continuing on an individual basis, with the backlog close to being completed. It is hoped the baptism group can resume its meetings in the near future and it is hoped that multiple baptisms can also resume in the near future.

The blessing of the graves at Templeisce and Rathcooney will take place on 7th November. The bereavement mass will take place on Wednesday 24th November.

Planning for Christmas will commence once the government advice for post 22nd October is confirmed.
