Parish Listening Process - The story so far...


Athenry Parish Forum -Throughout 2010 the Forum sub-group of the Parish Pastoral Council have been examining how best to listen to the opinions of those in the Parish, regardless of their connection with, or distance from Church.  Follwing widespread local publicity the listening process took place in the Raheen Woods Hotel on November 18th 2010.

The Forum sub group met on November 25th in order to examine how best to honour the points made on the night.  The top five priorities as emerged from each table on the night will be examined first by individual topic groups.  A second meeting was to take place on December 2nd, however due to weather conditions this has been postponed until January 17th 2011.   In the meantime, the two documents which emerged so far can be viewed below.  We'll kep you up to date on what's happening.  The Parish Forum sub-group of the Parish Pastoral Council can be contacted at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
