All men of the parish are invited to the next Men’s Club meeting, to be held on Monday, August 26. We are honored to have as our guest speaker
Mr. Shane Stephens, General Consul of Ireland in Atlanta, who will present “An Update on the Story of Ireland and America”
The meeting will start at 6:30 pm in the Ministry Hall with socializing and dinner, followed by our speaker. We will also review our calendar of events and discuss opportunities for you to get involved. Please also join us at 6:00 pm for Mass if your schedule allows.
So we can plan food and drinks, can you RSVP? In past years we have charged $20 for these events to cover the costs, but we are going to trial a donation-based approach. If you would like to donate, please bring some cash to the event. Regardless, we still need you to RSVP if you are attending.
Mr. Shane Stephens, General Consul of Ireland in Atlanta
Hailing from Dublin, Mr. Stephens is a husband, father, and diplomat. Since 2015, he has served as the second Irish Consul General for the US Southeastern region (from Mississippi to North Carolina). Since joining Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in 2001, he has served at Ireland’s Embassies to Tanzania, the Holy See, the European Union, Nigeria, and Malaysia. In the past, he has also been responsible for arranging many of the Irish President’s visits abroad and incoming Presidential visits to Ireland. He will touch on the many ways in which our respective histories, cultures, and economies have intertwined. He will focus on the outsized impacts that Ireland continues to have on the US academia, culture, and economy.
*As you plan your fall schedule, please also plan on a dinner/speaker event on Monday, September 23rd.
