|Star of the Sea, Retreat Centre, Mullaghmore|
Statement from the Diocese of Elphin in relation to the change in ownership of
“Business as usual at Star of the Sea, Mullaghmore”
From September 2013 the Catholic Diocese of Elphin will take over ownership of the Star of the Sea, Retreat and Conference Centre at Mullaghmore, Co. Sligo. In doing so it endeavours to secure the Centre’s religious mission and ethos into the future.
This change will not affect the current workings of the Centre or the various retreat programmes and services it currently offers. Business will continue as usual under the directorship of Sr Kathleen Rooney.
At this time of transition the Diocese of Elphin would like to acknowledge the generosity of the Mercy Congregation and pay tribute to the generations of Sisters of Mercy who over the years have contributed to the work of the Centre.
The Diocese also acknowledges the role played by the Board of Management of the Centre, the staff and the local community.
