On Tuesday, February 21st, the Primary Diocesan Advisors met with Bishop Fintan at Presentation Brothers, Mardyke House.
The purpose of the meeting was to look to the future and examine how the Diocese could continue to support the great work taking place in faith formation in our primary school communities.
Bishop Fintan thanked the Diocesan Advisors for their many years of generous and committed service. Their work is held in the highest esteem in primary schools throughout the Diocese.
Following a process of discussion, discernment and prayer, the meeting agreed that, given the rapid changes taking place in society and in education, the Diocese of Cork and Ross would now need to design a new structure for supporting faith formation with a full-time person or persons at the centre of this.
The wisdom, advice and experience of the present diocesan advisors would be invaluable during the transition period and in the on-going support of the person or persons appointed to this new role.
