Catholics And Protestants Will Be Sharing This Irish Church For The Next Year

St Maeldoid’s Church in Muckno, Co. Monaghan is set to house both Catholic and Protestants for the next year. 

The arrangement is due to the fact that St. Mary's Catholic Church in neighbouring Castleblayney is closing for essential renovations. 

According to the Irish Times, on Sundays the 10am Protestant service will be followed by Catholic Mass at 11.45am. 

Father Pat McHugh of St. Mary's Church said the gesture was “yet another example of the exceptional goodwill and wholesome spirit of Christian solidarity which we experience with our local Church of Ireland community.”

Fair play to all involved!
