Music ministry in Galway
Keara Sheeran, the Director of the “Jes” Gospel Choir in Galway, and her father Peter (pictured right and left here) sang with Fr Liam Lawton (centre), an award-winning singer-songwriter and priest, when he performed in Renmore Church, Galway, on Friday 16 April. Both Keara and her father are involved in the music ministry in Renmore church, but Keara also leads the Jes Gospel Choir, which animates the Slí Eile mass for young adults. This mass, under the coordination of Edel Roddy, has been going from strength to strength, and has a sizeable congregation every second Sunday – called “Soulful Sundays”. The Gospel Mass on these days is a lively and participative liturgy that appeals especially to young adults.
