On Saturday, 28th January, Bishop Paul Colton held a Morning Vigil at Cloyne Cathedral to pray for the vacant parishes in the Diocese, and also for vocations to lay and ordained ministry.
The Bishop led the Vigil in the Quire of Saint Colman’s Cathedral together with the Dean of Cloyne, the Very Rev. Susan Green, and the prayer stations set up in the two chapels provided a space for private prayer. Parishioners of Cloyne Union served refreshments throughout the event. The varied opportunities for guided prayer, private prayer and mingling with people from all across the diocese resulted in a prayerful yet lively occasion.
The vacancy in Douglas Union has now been filled, and the parishes of Fanlobbus Union, Moviddy Union, and Cobh and Glanmire Union remain in our prayers.
