Ossory Pastoral Life

The Ossory Diocesan Forum, established in response to widespread consultation in the Diocese in 2004, has developed as a network of Pastoral Councils at Parish, Deanery and Diocesan level. The purpose of these pastoral councils is to facilitate two-way communication, dialogue and consultation about all that pertains to the faith life of the Diocese. The vision at the heart of the Forum is one where bishop, priests, religious and lay people, by virtue of their Baptism, share responsibility for promoting the Kingdom of God in Ossory. Identifying and addressing pastoral concerns in an on-going way and planning for the future of the Diocese is the mission of the Forum.
