Training Courses

There are now over 300 people in the diocese who have undertaken the Diocese of Kerry Course in Pastoral Ministry. This is a great source of renewal and deepening of faith and ministry for all. Participants have enjoyed the camaraderie of fellow ministers as well as the opportunity to interact with theologians around key aspects of faith and ministry.

Would you or someone you know like to do the course?

During 2016 – 17,  the course will be run over 8 Saturdays in Kenmare – 4 Saturdays before Christmas and 4 Saturdays after Christmas. So if you or anyone you know would be interested in deepening their experience of faith and their knowledge of their own faith, you might let them know of this upcoming course or send them on the application form.
