St. Colman's Parish (Milltown/Listry Churches) Community Consultation: All Welcome

Recently Bishop Ray Browne issued a Pastoral Letter 'Moving Forward in Hope' - Shaping together the future of the pastoral areas, parishes and local church communities in the Kerry Diocese. 

Bishop Ray's vision is that each parish/local church community can sustain itself and thrive through lay people taking leadership roles locally and working co-responsibly with priests available across the Pastoral Area. This fits in with the global drive under the leadership of Pope Francis for a more synodal church, where we all have a part to play because of our baptism. Facilitated consultation meetings for lay people are currently being held in every parish in the Kerry Diocese and the arrangements for the meeting in the Milltown/Listry Parish are as follows:

Date: Tuesday, 5th March 

Where: Nagle Rice Community Centre, Milltown 

Time: 7:30pm - 9:00pm. 

Those attending this meeting will be asked to consider the following three questions and give feedback which will be forwarded to the Diocesan Office and will be used in drawing up a plan for a way forward to ensure the sustainability of our Church and Faith Communities into the future. 

  1. Without the presence of a priest to lead and co-ordinate, what parts of parish life could we take responsibility for and organise? 
  2. Where do we see scope for co-operation with neighbouring parishes in our Pastoral Area? 
  3. Given what Bishop Ray has said about reducing numbers and increasing age, what is it we want to say to priests? 

This is your opportunity to have your say. All welcome to attend.

Milltown Bowling Club

New Year, New hobby. Want to try something new and fun then come along to Milltown Nagle Rice community centre and have a go at short mat bowls. All you need is just a pair of comfortable shoes for two hours of gently rolling bowls along a 1.8 meter wide x 12 meter long mat. A timber block is placed midway along the mat and the aim of the game is to roll a bowl along the mat, avoiding the block and touching a yellow ball called the “Jack” at the opposite end. A wooden fender is placed at both ends to keep the bowls from rolling off the mat end. Nearest bowl to the Jack after 9 ends scores, the more of your bowls closer than your opponent the more you score. All training and guidance will be provided along with the use of club bowls to get you started. Once you get going then we have league and cup competitions, friendly individual and group matches along with the opportunity to play other clubs within Kerry. Sounds simple!!! Well the only way to find out is to come along and have a go.

First night is free and it’s only a fiver then per night for two hours of fun and learning to play one of the fastest growing indoor sports for all age groups in Ireland. Milltown bowls club looks forward to seeing you on Tuesday and Friday nights at 8pm.
