Bishop Brendan receiving Offertory Gifts during Mass for Catholic Schools Week, 2016

The bishop and people of Achonry Diocese gathered in the Cathedral of The Annunciation and St Nathy, Ballaghaderreen to celebrate Catholic Schools Week.  Bishop Brendan was the Principal Celebrant at the Eucharist.  He was joined by people from the parishes of the diocese, with many schools represented and children taking part in the liturgy. It was an uplifting celebration.  In his homily, Bishop Brendan spoke of Jesus as “teacher” and of the broad canvas that is “Catholicism“.
