Cashel & Emly Listening Process 

Listening Process and Pastoral Planning

Cashel & Emly Listening Process Follow-Up 

The Listening Process has been completed throughout Cashel & Emly.  We have now prepared a detailed ‘Diocesan Listening Process Report and next steps – a discussion document’ (Report)  – click here to download – has been the subject of extensive discussion at our Gatherings of Parishes throughout 2019.  We thank all those who have attended and contributed to our ongoing conversation as we progress towards launching and implementing initiatives in 2020.

Arising from these discussions we have prepared a DRAFT pastoral plan which outlines, the key emerging diocesan priorities within the context of an agreed diocesan Vision Statement so as to allow further discussion upon how they can take effect in parishes.  Our aim, having taken account of feedback, is to be ready to launch diocesan pastoral initiatives at Pentecost (31st May 2020) and implement them in September 2020.

In light of the public health authority’s regulations to curb the spread of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) we have had to defer until further notice our remaining Gatherings of Parishes which were to continue to provide feedback to our DRAFT pastoral plan.

In the interim, you are invited to feedback your response to our DRAFT pastoral plan online – it can be accessed via the following link Draft Pastoral Plan March 2020 – Final version March 6

In conjunction, with our ongoing conversation upon our DRAFT pastoral plan you are invited to participate online in our Lenten ‘call to prayer’.  See ‘Lent 2020 – a call to prayer’ on this website.

Looking forward to your feedback as we move towards launching and implementing pastoral initiatives for the parishes of Cashel & Emly.

Keeping each other in prayer.
