Faithcast is the weekly podcast from catholicnews.ie, the news source for the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference. Presented by Brenda Drumm, Faithcast is a mixture of interviews, news and stories of faith from the Catholic Church in Ireland.
In episode 30 of Faithcast, Brenda speaks to Father John McCarthy, Administrator of St Colman’s Cathedral in Cobh about this year’s centenary celebrations for the cathedral. Father McCarthy talks about the the role of the cathedral as a place of worship for a vibrant parish community but also as a place of immense historical and cultural interest to people from Ireland and overseas.
The faith news this week features Archbishop Eamon Martin’s welcome for Pope Francis’ message for World Communications Day 2019 on cyberbullying; Pope Francis’ reflections on WYD Panama at his weekly General Audience; Archbishop Diarmuid Martin’s homily at Mass for ‘Panama in Dublin’; and Trócaire’s 2019 poetry competition on the theme ‘Land is Life’.
