Training for Lay Led Liturgy in Imeall Boirne Cluster

All of us are aware that we are living at a time of great change and that we need to prepare for a different kind of Church in the future. One of areas we need to prepare for is in the area of Liturgy. In September training will begin for lay led liturgy in our Cluster. This training will be held in Ruan Community Centre on Monday nights at 8 p.m. beginning on September 4th.  Because it is important that everyone understands what is involved, we hope that as many as possible will take part in the training, including those already involved in any kind of ministry such as Ministers of the Word and Ministers of the Eucharist and those involved in choirs or liturgical music. 

At the end of the training we hope to have teams in place in the different parish and church communities able to lead a liturgy in the absence of a priest.

The training will be led by Fr Ger Nash and Maureen Kelly.  

Youth Ministry:    Bóirne YOUTH Connect is being launched as a new faith initiative for young people following on from the experience of NET Ministries in our Cluster.
