The Deacon: Called To Serve

On Sunday next 17th  June at 3pm in St Michael’s Church, Enniskillen, Martin Donnelly of Enniskillen will be ordained as the first permanent deacon in our diocese since the diaconate was re-introduced by Vatican II as a ‘distinct ministry of service’. All are welcome to witness Martin’s ordination. On Monday 18 June, Deacon Martin will preside at Evening Prayer of Thanksgiving in St Michael’s Church at 7.30pm. We are all asked to pray for Martin, his wife and family and the whole parish community of Enniskillen during the days ahead.

Training To Be A Deacon

The admission process for a deacon is similar to that for a priest. After a preparatory year, those candidates considered suitable and are accepted must begin a three-year formation programme, with classes held mostly at weekends. This is a substantial commitment to the study of Scripture, Theology, Liturgy and Canon Law. The rich tradition of Christian spirituality will be a key part of the formation period. Other aspects will include the development of personal and pastoral skills, including a pastoral placement for a time in the diocese.

World Meeting Of Families

Registration for the WMOF congress is now approaching 28,000 and the RDS is now reaching it’s full capacity.  The opportunity for registering for one day (Wed or Thurs) may be closing down next week.  It will be the largest such WMOF ever.  Volunteers are still required, if you access the website it will give you the information at www.worldmeeting2018.ie Because of the demand for the ‘Festival of Families’ on Saturday in Croke park there are limited tickets available but Pope Francis would like one family from each parish to attend this means that there must be a draw from among those who express an interest.  If you are interested contact Anne in the office between 12.30pm – 3.30pm from Mon – Fri

National Collection for the World Meeting of Families

‘The family is the greatest treasure of any country. Let us all work to protect and strengthen this, the cornerstone of society’ – Pope Francis. Pope Francis personally chose Dublin, to host the World Meeting of Families from 22-26 August 2018.  Planning for this great national and international celebration of faith is at the final stage. As we know there will be a number of different elements of the WMOF2018 which include (i) A National Opening in each diocese; (ii) A Pastoral Congress from 22-24 August; (iii) the Festival of Families on 25 August; and, (iv) the Closing Mass on Sunday 26 August. At this stage we are all very conscious of the challenges of hosting this national and international event and consequently I am seeking your personal support and commitment in promoting our fourth national collection which will be held on the weekend of 16th and 17th June 2018.     Bishop Francis Duffy Chairman – National Finance Committee
