Bangor diocesan team visit Meath & Kildare

Share this story

Nine members from Bangor Diocese visited Meath and Kildare diocese in the last weekend of February this year. Bangor is a partner diocese with Meath and Kildare. Their team was led by Bishop Andy John.

The Bangor team were hosted by different members of our own dioceses.
During the weekend they had an opportunity to hear about life in Meath and Kildare and our parishes. There was also a visit to Kildare Cathedral, local parishes as well as a special Service in Trim Cathedral on the Sunday evening, with singing led by our diocesan choir. Bishop Andy was interviewed by our own bishop at Sunday morning Service in Dunboyne.

Bangor diocese covers the whole of the north-western quarter of Wales, taking in the old counties of Anglesey, Caernarfon, Meirionnydd and the northern portion of Montgomeryshire, and is roughly co-terminous with the ancient kingdom of Gwynedd. It extends from the port of Holyhead in the north to the rural market town of Llanidloes in the south; from the holy island of Bardsey in the west to Llandudno in the east, along the North Wales coastal strip; behind which lies Snowdonia and the most mountainous areas of Wales.
