*Message from Bishop Ray, 10 August 2020 : Pastoral Care of Annascaul Parish
In the recent Diocesan changes, I have appointed Fr Michael Moynihan, Parish Priest of Dingle, as Moderator (Administrator) of Annascaul parish. He will work with the other Priests in the Corcha Dhuibhne Pastoral Area, including Fr Eamonn Mulvihill PP Castlegregory and Fr Eugene Kiely PP Ballyferriter. Together, they will minister to the Pastoral and Sacramental needs of the people of Annascaul Parish. While every effort will be made to maintain the existing service, nevertheless it is important to realise that with fewer priests and more demands on them, it is inevitable that there will be changes affecting all parishes. During the months ahead there will be consultation and planning regarding the future Pastoral Care of Annascaul Parish within the Pastoral Area.
Fr John O’Donoghue (Missionaries of Africa) and Fr Donal O’Connor (Chaplain in ITTralee) will be ministering in Annascaul Parish until Christmas 2020.
I wish to thank Fr John, Fr Donal and the Priests of the Pastoral Area for their commitment to the people of Annascaul Parish and the wider Corcha Dhuibhne Pastoral area.
Yours in Christ, + Ray Browne. 10 August 2020.
* Pioneer Total Abstinence Association: Pioneers: In 1898, Father Cullen founded the Pioneer Total Abstinence Association of The Sacred Heart. Pioneers are ordinary people who :
(1) Abstain from Alcohol - to make reparation to Christ for the sins of intemperance; - to express their concern for the conversion of excessive drinkers; - to make themselves free and independent of alcohol in order to be of service to others; - to show be example that temperance, indeed total abstinence, is possible even for an Irishman!
(2) Recite twice daily the brief Pioneer Offering: For thy greater glory and consolation O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for Thy sake to give good example to practice self-denial to make reparation to Thee for the sins of intemperance and for the conversion of excessive drinkers, I will abstain for life from all intoxicating drinks. (3) Wear the Emblem of Christ's Heart, the symbol of the unfailing love and mercy of Christ for us.
