On behalf of Caoimhe's Christmas lights, the family would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came to see their display over Christmas despite the bad weather, and to everyone who gave so generously to the cause! Delighted to say that they raised a total of €3000.00 for the Limerick Neo Natal unit. This cheque was presented to Margo Dunworth and Deirdre O' Connel,l clinical midwife managers of the unit, on Thursday the 19th of April. Looking forward to seeing everyone again in December! Kevin, Lorraine and Caoimhe Lynch.

New Vision for Parishes: - At a meeting last week, Bishop Brendan set out new structures for managing the Diocese, as priest numbers decline. He is suggesting that instead of 60 parishes/units, there will be 3 parishes of 20 pastoral units.
Each pastoral unit will have one pastoral council, a Moderator and an Administrative office. Existing Priests will resign and be appointed ' co-parish priests'. This means each Priest will no longer be exclusive to one parish but will be part of a team serving all three parishes. So for any Church events in the future, we will have one of the three priests attending. No date is set for the changes yet, but it will come sooner rather than later.
