On 5th November, the Marist Provincial, Fr. Martin McAnaney, wrote to the Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin, stating that he and his Provincial Council have offered Fr. Edwin McCallion PP of St. Brendan’s Parish, Coolock and formally PP of Donore Avenue Parish, an opportunity of a period of renewal, both Marist and personal. It will take place in La Neyliere, the Marist house near Lyons, France. Fourteen Marists from around the world will attend the programme.
Fr. Paul Walsh, Marist Father, will be appointed as Administrator of Coolock Parish from Friday 10th January 2020 to Sunday 26th July 2020 to ensure continuity and the animation of parish life. It is intended that Fr. Edwin will return to his role as Parish Priest after the renewal.
