Kerry pastoral ministry awards night

Certificates in Pastoral Ministry

Bishop Ray Browne presented the Diocese of Kerry Certificate in Pastoral Ministry to 75 people from 26 parishes in Tralee, Co. Kerry.

The participants have just completed a 20 week course in Pastoral Ministry which enabled them to deepen their understanding and knowledge of their faith and ministry. These people are already committed members of their parish, involved in parish pastoral councils, liturgy groups, finance committees, choirs, Ministry of the Word or as Eucharistic Ministers. The aim of the course is to support all those who are involved in parish life, and to enable them to share their talents and gifts more effectively. The course has been run over the past two years in the diocese and to date, 150 people from 37 parishes in the diocese have completed the course.

The Course in Pastoral Ministry will take place again next year, in the John Paul II Pastoral Centre and in Ardfert Retreat Centre, Ardfert. An outreach Course in Pastoral Ministry will be run for the parishes of the Beara Pastoral Area. For further information, contact Frances Rowland on 064 6630538 or
