In his recent pastoral letter to the people of our diocese, Bishop Ger said the following: 'The need for training and formation to enable and empower us to play a renewed role in the ongoing life of the Church was very much evident, particularly during the four deanery meetings in the Springtime that focused exclusively on training. Now is a good time to outline some of the planned initiatives that we have prayerfully discerned with the help of the Holy Spirit.
In the Autumn of this year, I will be inviting people to participate in developing the faith life of the families, parishes and pastoral areas of the Diocese. We will be encouraging a renewal of mission from committed lay people to prepare for and take up specific roles which in the past were undertaken by ordained ministers'.
Recently, we spoke to Bishop Ger in an interview in which he explains the context and content of his Pastoral letter.
