Parish Assembly meeting

September 29, 2020

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 we reviewed the current Covid-19 measures and agreed we would continue with these measures and continue to operate in line with good practice and with advice from the government and public health.

We discussed the need for ongoing communication and agreed Glanmire Parish needs to have a reliable and stable streaming service.

We then discussed the ceremonies that traditionally happen in October and November and agreed we need to look for different solutions this year. It is hoped St Joseph’s will have a stable streaming service soon and the November rosary and mass for the bereaved can be streamed.

Christmas was briefly discussed.  It is agreed we cannot faciliate the usual crowds at the churches this Christmas. It is hoped there will be Diocesian direction on this subject and it will be discussd in more detail at the next meeting.
