Bishop Fintan Gavin’s first weekend pastoral visit to a parish as Mass is celebrated with a congregation again was to Togher Parish, Cork.
Bishop Fintan celebrated Mass at the Church of the Way of the Cross, Togher, on Saturday at 6.30pm and on Sunday at 11 and at 6.30pm.
After Sunday morning Mass, Bishop Fintan took a walk through the parish with Fr. Ben Hodnett and he greeted many parishioners young and old. He gave them all a word of encouragement as we continue through these difficult times.
Bishop Fintan also visited the Marian Grotto in Deanrock Estate, and congratulated the locals who maintain their grotto to such a high standard.
Bishop Fintan also thanked all who make church celebrations possible and safe. He especially thanked the volunteer stewards, sacristans, readers and ministers of the Eucharist.
