The Eucharist – Communion with Christ and with One Another – this will be the theme of the Eucharistic Congress in Dublin in 2012, but could just as easily be a motto for the custom of Station Masses in the home. When people gather for Mass in their local area it builds up a neighbourly spirit and strengthens faith in Christ. In most areas of the parish, Stations have not been celebrated for a number of years. However, it only takes one household to come forward to revive this tradition, and it only takes a handful of willing families in a Station Area to put it on a firm footing for the years to come. There’s no need to make an extravagant ‘splash’ of hospitality – all that is asked is a warm welcome for neighbours and for Christ in the Eucharist. Anyone interested in hosting Stations in their home this autumn should contact Tigh na Sagart on 066 9151208 during the coming weeks.
Críost ár nDóchas – Pastoral Plan 2009-2013
Last Sunday Bishop Murphy launched Christ Our Hope, the Pastoral Plan for the Diocese of Kerry in Killarney. He also commissioned the members of the new Area Pastoral Councils and the revamped diocesan website. The plan is available to read (in English and Irish) on the diocesan webpage:
The goal of the Diocesan Pastoral Plan is not to change structures or to introduce new ones. No. The goal of the plan, and of the renewal that it will bring about, must be to build up the People of God in this diocese so that we will believe in our hearts, confess with our lips and show by our lives that Christ is our Hope. – Bishop Bill Murphy
