BookmarkOn Tuesday 8th September 2015, the birthday of our Lady, Archbishop Eamon launched our new five year Diocesan Pastoral Plan (2015-2020) in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh. It is the fruit of eighteen months of consultation and feedback from all around the diocese, including lay people, priests and religious.  The Diocesan Pastoral Plan(2015-2020) is a major diocesan initiative which will unfold over the next five years.

The Plan is divided into three main areas of focus:

A) Mission and Outreach

B) Spirit-Filled Worship

C) Understanding of our Faith

In each of these areas, the Plan will offer five objectives to guide us in our pastoral ministry over the next five years.
