Share the Good News

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

‘Share the Good News’ – the first ever National Directory for Catechesis in Ireland was launched today in Dublin by Bishop William Murphy. It is historical as it’s the first ever directory, researched and written over the past five years, and presented within an Irish context. It offers a genuine opportunity for adult education of Catholics about their faith. It is written in understandable language, beautifully illustrated and presented. The contents will appeal to Catholic people wherever they find themselves on their faith journey. Guidance, understanding, thought provoking and call to appropriate action are some of the results of delving into this book. It is for all Catholics. Parish and family life are once again acknowledged and promoted as the basic units of Christian and Catholic community.   Catholic religious education is an important topic today in a changing Ireland.  This debate will continue. The future of the faith is the responsibility of all Catholics. ‘Share the Good News’ is required reading for all who wish to be Catholic in Ireland. It is available from Veritas bookshops or on www.veritas.ie.

The addresses given by Cardinal Seán Brady and Archbishop Diarmuid Martin at today’s launch can be viewed on www.catholicbishops.ie –News section.

Better Together!

Friday, November 26th, 2010

On the 25th November 2010 ChurchServices.TV was invited together with other Irish charities, clubs and associations working in the Community Services Sector to the Better Together !Awards hosted by RTEs Mary Kennedy.

The Better Together! campaign aims to show you how you can make a difference by getting involved in community and voluntary activity. Videos entries were made on the website that showcase the work of some of the thousands of charities, clubs and associations that are active across Ireland.

After a couple of weeks of nothing but bleak news on the Economic front the Better Together Awards ceremony was just what the Doctor ordered. Deirdre Garvey of the Wheel was delightful and Mary Kennedy a perfect hostess.

The Winners can be found http://www.bettertogether.ie/2010-winners and I would encourage everybody to take a look at their award winning videos.
