CLOGHER DIOCESE IN DIALOGUE – a journey into the future. 


Bishop Larry Duffy is inviting all parishes to take part in a conversation to consider how we as a Church continue to sustain living parishes now and going into the future in Clogher Diocese. This conversation seeks understanding more than agreement; agreement will take time to achieve. Be assured, however, this is the beginning of a conversation which will be listened to and which will inform future planning.



Meetings will be held during March to which you and fellow-parishioners are warmly invited. The meeting involving our parish and others in this Pastoral Area will be held in Pettigo Parish Hall on Wednesday 11th March beginning at 7.30pm and to conclude by 9.30pm.



Fr. McManus will not be available during the coming week. Please contact: 

Fr La Flynn in Pettigo on 0035371-9861666 or 0035371-9861200 

Fr Kevin Duffy in Irvinestown on 028 686 21856.

Dear Fr Frank,

Happy New Year from all of us at Trócaire I just wanted to share with you the latest edition of our Winter 2020 supporter newsletter – Your Love in Action – to show you how we are putting donations just like yours to work already. 
In your newsletter linked below you’ll read stories from Trócaire’s work around the world such as Abelino Chub Call from Guatemala who was wrongfully imprisoned for 813 days or Nancy Wanjiku from Kenya whose little sewing machine changed her life all thanks to your amazing support. 

  Read Newsletter 
Nancy Wanjiku is just one person and one example of how a Women’s empowerment programme at her local St. Joseph’s parish funded through your support for Trócaire helped to change her future forever.

Nancy lives with her two young daughters in one of these Kenya slums. Recently she was pushed out of her job, and it left her worried if they’d survive. 

I won’t tell you the rest of the story here. You’ll find it in right here in your newsletter. But thanks to that sewing machine and some incredible skills training, you have made Nancy’s story a bright spot amidst the heartache

One life at a time is, in many ways, the way your generosity conquers fear through Trócaire. The way you bring change and small, repeatable successes. 

One solar powered well. One flock of chickens. One training course in zero waste farming so people can eat in a changing climate. 

It is this thread that runs through your supporter newsletter. The thread that connects your heart to Abelino’s and Nancy’s, and to thousands more around the world for a multitude of spontaneous acts of strength, grace, and decency.

“We just ask that people continue to show their solidarity with us,” said Abelino. And as a new year dawns, I know beyond a shadow of doubt you will. 

Your donations are changing the world. 
Until love conquers fear, thank you

Caoimhe De Barra
CEO Trócaire
