The Diocese of Dromore joins the NSSP
As Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Dromore I am delighted to acknowledge the support of the Hamish Ogston Foundation which has provided funding to establish the National Schools Singing Programme within the Diocese. My own episcopal motto is ‘Sing a new song to the Lord’ and I hope that this initiative will help us to do just that! The programme will aim to introduce children from the primary and post-primary schools of the Newry area and the wider diocese to the joys of church music. It will provide singing workshops for school children, and teacher development workshops for staff to encourage and promote the involvement of young people in the musical life of our parishes.
