Pastoral Plan

The Diocese of Limerick has celebrated a Diocesan Synod, the first in 80 years. It has been an event of the Holy Spirit, an experience of deep encounter, a time of hope.

Pastoral Care of the Family

The Christian vision states that family life is sacred and its activities holy, and that the family can be described as the "domestic Church".

Youth Ministry

Our youth ministry programmes, pilgrimages and events are all centred around three flames, Failte, Foghlaim & Gui

History & Heritage

The Diocese of Limerick actually dates from the twelfth century when its boundaries were laid down at the Synod of Rathbreasail.
