July 5th-10th 2019
62 young people from across the Diocese, accompanied by Fr. Leo Creelman, Youth Director James McLoughlin and 9 volunteer leaders travelled to Lourdes as part of the Diocesan Pilgrimage.
The young people played a key role with the Assisted Pilgrims from the Diocese, making sure they got to all the Masses, liturgies and other events of the pilgrimage. The young people of Clogher don Óige also played a central role in the liturgies during our six days in Lourdes - leading the Low Stations, the Closing Ceremony and various prayers and music at Masses. The young people excelled themselves, with servant hearts were a credit to themselves, their families, parishes and communities.
*We have a new Bishop!!!
The news has just been announced that Pope Francis has appointed Monsignor Larry Duffy, current Parish Priest of Carrickmacross, to be the next Bishop of the Diocese of Clogher!
We have been without a Bishop now for a little over two years since Bishop Liam McDaid's resignation on health grounds. We keep Bishop-Elect Larry in our prayers as he prepares to begin this new chapter of his priestly ministry. We look forward to working with him in the future and have lots of dates to be put in his diary!!
