PASTORAL COUNCIL: Kilcornan Parish is a member of Pastoral area known as Tuath Phadraig Naofa which stretches along the Shannon Estuary. There are eight parishes in our Pastoral Area: Askeaton/Ballysteen, Cappagh, Coolcappa/Kilcolman, Glin, Kilcornan, Kildimo/Pallaskenry, Loughill/Ballyhahill, and Shanagolden/Foynes/Robertstown.
The parishes are mutually supportive; in particular back-up is provided in the absence of a priest from one of the parishes. The Priests of our Pastoral Area have a system in place, so that there is always a Priest available. Michael Bourke from Ballysteen was recently appointed Chairperson of this pastoral group. The Eolas notice is on the Church noticeboard and gives information on various courses etc. in the Diocese. Any Pastoral information is available from the Pastoral Centre, Denmark Street, Limerick.
