16th September 2014
Volunteers for The Zambia Outreach Mission Team 2015 have been selected from the recent meeting which was held in Fr. Paul’s house and a standby list has been drawn up. If anyone would like to be added to the standby list please contact Fr. Paul for further details. The 2015 visit will take place from 1-18th July. So far, the local parish priest and one of the parish sisters has indicated that they will pay a visit to us in August 2015 and perhaps be accompanied by one or two members of their parish pastoral council.
What can/does a deacon do? Malachy is a fully ordained minister and will perform baptisms, marriages and funerals, in the same way a priest can do, without the celebration of Mass, but with a service of readings and distribution of Holy Communion where appropriate. He will preach sermons and assist at Mass and lead other liturgies such as Benediction. Malachy will also be involved in pastoral work in the parish.
He is a husband, father and grandfather and this weekend he will celebrate the baptism of his newest grandson, Fionn. We welcome him wholeheartedly to the parish team and wish him God’s abundant blessings as he begins his ministry among us.
