Meath Diocesan Changes

Bishop Tom has announced this year’s diocesan changes which are available on the diocesan website.  We are very sad to announce that we will be losing Fr. Noel.  When he leaves hospital he will be moving to Navan on a pro-tem basis until his health improves enough to receive a new appointment.  

Bishop Tom has announced that Fr. Joseph Apust of the diocese of Minna in Nigeria will take up the position of curate in Mornington/Laytown and will also continue his studies in Maynooth on a number of days each week.  
As we say farewell to Fr. Noel, we welcome Fr. Joseph and wish him every happiness in our parish.  
The new appointments will take effect on Monday 17th June.
