The Association has been graced from the outset by a galaxy of remarkable women. Three dynamic and inspirational women – Agnes McCauley from Enniskillen, Mrs Mary McCall and Mrs Mary Nihill (Mrs McCall’s daughter) from Belfast, pioneered the foundation, organisation and expansion of the movement.
Apostolic Work commenced in the diocese of Killaloe, with the first branch and headquarters established in Ennis in 1955 by Mrs Evelyn Farron. She learned of the organisation from her friend Mrs Ferrigan, from Armagh, who had come to live in Ennis with her family. Materials were sent from the Armagh centre to get the work underway.
Anyone can become a member of Apostolic Work. In order to provide funds for the Developing World all a person needs is a willingness to be generous. Our fundraising varies from Church gate collections, sale of raffle tickets, sales of work, cake sales. Some dioceses specialise in the production of vestments, albs, altar cloths. The support of all is most welcome – just contact any member in our parish or the office in Ennis.
