Diocesan Committee praises set up of Pastoral councils

The setting up of pastoral councils in Kerry has been described as the way forward by The Diocesan Pastoral Plan Steering Committee. Milltown, Listry and Castlemaine are the first areas in the county to have pastoral councils phased in. They are in response to the diminishing numbers joining the priesthood. Tony Darmody admits this initiative a big step and it may be slow to start but that there will be no shortage of volunteers.
