“Should planners be allowed to dictate to a religious denomination that only Victorian liturgy may be celebrated in a Victorian church?” – Oswald.
Have you been to Mass in Cobh Cathedral ?
Where do you get the idea that “Victorian Liturgy” is celebrated in Cobh ?
How many times does it have to be said that the changes proposed for St. Colman’s are not liturgically required. At the oral hearing in Midleton this was stated ad nauseum by the FOSCC. When the Applicants had an opportunity to explain to the Bord just how these proposals were required for the Liturgy they singularly failed to take that opportunity. In fact the Trustees and their agents have been very careful not to say they were liturgicaly required in any public forum, other than the one document submitted to Cobh Town Council.
Even Richard Hurley writing on behalf of the Arts Council says that the changes are not required but desireable. This is precisely the point that FOSCC has been making from the beginning.
Maybe Oswald can enlighten us as to how these proposals are required and by whom ?
