Ennis Parish Honours Lifetimes of Service
On Thursday 6th December 2018 at 8.00pm Bishop Fintan Monahan will launch a book entitled “Go make Disciples of all Nations” in the Ennis Parish Centre. The book, which has been compiled by John Bradley and Cora McNulty in association with The Clare Roots Society, recalls the countless men and women from the parish who gave their lives in service of the Gospel as priests and religious throughout the 20th Century and into the 21st.
This project, which was the brainchild of Fr. Tom Hogan in his last year as Parish Priest of Ennis, honours the vocations of men and women from the parish who witnessed to the values of the Gospel at home and throughout the world. Fr. Tom was keen to salute their memory and record their names and achievements – ‘lest we forget.’
The Clare Roots Society came on board early in the project and there is much valuable genealogical information included about Ennis families. Great credit is due to Cora McNulty and John Bradley who took responsibility for the compilation of this beautiful production. The project was greatly supported by the community who shared information, memories and photos as well as the archivists of the many religious congregations to whom the men and women of Ennis dedicated their lives.
Filled with memories, photos and reflections, this book promises to be a wonderful record of faith-filled people whose lives are worthy of recall. The launch will be preceded by Mass in honour of these Men and Women celebrated by Bishop Fintan Monahan in the Cathedral of Ss. Peter and Paul, Ennis at 7.30pm
