The annual clergy conference of the United Dioceses of Cork, Cloyne and Ross took place on Thursday, 3rd March 2022 at the Garryvoe Hotel in East Cork.
The clergy were reporting on and discussing aspects centred around the Five Marks of Mission. Also present and reporting were the Diocesan Secretary Billy Skuse, Diocesan Media and IT Officer Denise Brueckl, and Peter Stobart and Robbie Caroll who represent the Diocesan Church Music Scheme.
Before lunch, Peter and Robbie led the singing of a Ukrainian Traditional Chant as a sign of solidarity with the people of Ukraine.
Bishop Paul Colton commented:
It is good to start getting back on track with some routine. That said, as we here feel we are emerging from a pandemic, the distressing and heartbreaking reports and images from Ukraine and of refugees are hugely on our minds and in our prayers.
