Following feedback from parish meetings across the diocese in Autumn 2023, Bishop Martin and the Working Group are delighted to announce that plans are well underway for developing (in conjunction with the Centre for Mission and Ministries at St. Patrick’s Pontifical University, Maynooth) our Lay Pastoral Worker Training Programme. This training programme aims to equip lay leaders with the skills to work in parishes/pastoral areas as Lay Pastoral Workers.

Information meetings are being scheduled across the diocese during September 2024. More details to follow.
