Invitations to the ordination of the new bishop of our diocese on June 30th in Cork are currently being distributed. Each of our 68 parishes have received seven invitations. Fr Fintan Gavin’s ordination as bishop will be attended by people from throughout the diocese, from around Ireland and beyond.
People in West Cork can also be part of the celebration by going to Mass on that day in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Skibbereen at 3pm. The ceremony at the Cathedral of St. Mary and St. Anne will be relayed to a large screen in Skibbereen where people and clergy will join in the ordination by their prayers, hymns and Communion.
