The Sycamore Series for those aged 18 – 35 is organised by UCC Chaplaincy and Presentation Brothers in collaboration with the Diocese of Cork and Ross.
Have you ever questioned why you are Catholic and wondered why we Catholics believe what we believe? The Sycamore Series is an informal course for those aged 18-35. Join us as we deepen our understanding and knowledge of the Catholic faith. Each session involves a short film and time for discussion, with a meal also included.
Everyone is welcome. Start date Wednesday October 4th 2023, 6pm-8pm at Presentation Brothers Mardyke House, Cork T12 W8RP. The course runs for 10 consecutive weeks. The course is free, but places are limited. Please email
The support of parishes in letting people know was invaluable to the success of this Series last year so your support will be much appreciated again this year.
Welcome to the Ballyphehane, the Lough and the Togher Parish website!
Welcome to our new Website which details the union of our family of parishes, Ballyphehane, The Lough and Togher. In creating this family we have also created a bond between our three churches in order to sustain their pastoral life.
Practically this means parishioners, lay people, clergy and religious communities sharing resources, responsibilities, and ministry, strengthening our unity as one Body of Christ.
Please email us any suggestions you have as we would be delighted to hear from you.
