Stories from the Family of Parishes
On 29 July 1971 the Foundation Stone of our Church was blessed by Bishop Cornelius Lucey
In the photograph he is surrounded by so many people and families of the parish. On that day we became a family of families, gathering around the table of the Lord. In this photo Bishop Lucey blesses the spot where the Altar of God will be placed.
Fifty years later we continue to be a family of families, gathered around the table of the Lord, even virtually during the COVID-19 Pandemic (in the photo below, Bishop Fintan Gavin is pictured with parishioners at the first public Mass in May 2021 after the National Lockdown).
Fifty years after our foundation stone was blessed, Togher Church continues to be a family of families gathered around the table of the Lord Jesus.
In keeping with Covid 19 regulations, we are counting down to the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of our church (29.07. 1972). As we make our way to that day, we will pray our way through, keeping in mind the words of Jesus "my house shall be called a house of prayer" (Matthew 21)
July 29th 2021: (Foundation day) We blessed the walls of the Church,asking God's blessing on this, his house.
