Parish Assembly meeting

January 20, 2022

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 Advent and Christmas ceremonies. All feedback was positive, with the exception of some names omitted in error from Christmas list. Fr John formally thianked everyone for the Christmas offerings. The assembly proposed and seconded a motion to formally thank Mary Shorten for her planning and running of the choir and cantors during Advent and Christmas.

The parish is trialing the use of a mobile camera at St Joseph’s. Once this is proven to work, how it will be used will need to be planned.

This assembly is coming to the end of its term and a subgroup will meet to plan out the formation of a new assembly.

There was some discussion around the Baptism groups but it was agreed that despite the huge value offered by them, the time isn’t right to reintroduce yet.
