The Service of Evening Prayer was held, in compliance with current Government regulations, in Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral, Cork.

Last year Alan and Kieran both completed the Certificate in Christian Studies in the Diocese (validated by the Pontifical University at Maynooth) and subsequently undertook an additional practical module in the Diocese. They will now embark on an additional year of supervised practical training in their parishes. Alan will be in Cloyne Union and Youghal Union with the Very Reverend Susan Green and Canon Andrew Orr. Kieran will be in Douglas Union with Frankfield, with Archdeacon Adrian Wilkinson.
