Parish Assembly meeting

June 21, 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 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 the most recent meeting, we discussed updates to the parish IT system which have happened and potential future updates. A thank you from the principal of St Joseph’s was read out thanking the parish assembly for help with the 1st communions. The parish assembly will reply to this. Included in this reply will be good wishes for the recently announced retired of the principal.

The new Bishop of Cork & Ross will be consecrated on June 30th. Glanmire received 7 invitations to this and these need to be distributed fairly. Anyone interested will be asked to submit their names at masses on Sunday and a draw will take place after morning mass on Monday.

It was highlighted that the school boards are up for renewal and names of new chairs need to be with Diocesan office by 5th July.

The annual mass at Rathcooney will take place on 2nd July.

There was some discussion around a retreat for the parish assembly for October.

The parish assembly doesn’t meet during July and August and meetings will resume in September.
