Brother Brian read an Invocation.  (A copy is included here under Holy Day Prayers).

Brother Brendan stated that a notice of this meeting was posted on www.celticfisher.org on August 27th and all were invited to join via Skype.

Brother James gave his Address to Youth and stated that, although there was a vast amount of material, he would concentrate, for the purposes of this meeting on Reverence.  The main points were that there is a vast difference between Reverence and respect and that Reverence is more important than Respect. He stated that there should be Respect for all living and non-living things and taught that all things whether living or non-living have vibrations. We must all embrace the concept of reverence which seems to be lacking in today’s youth but which he feels can be nourished by all.

5. New Business

     a) Brother Brendan proposed that the Church should promote the acquisition of an island off the West coast of Ireland.
            Moved Brother Brian seconded by Brother James
            Discussion: Brother Brian proposed that such island be made available to all adherents of the Church and this was unanimously agreed upon. He also                   stated that, having been asked why such a place should not be situated in Canada or the United States he had remarked that there was a sense of peace             in Ireland that did not seem to prevail in other countries and he considered this a strong positive indication of geographic location for the Church.
           Motion APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY

     b) Brother Brian pointed out that, of the large number of remarks made on FaceBook about the Church, only two have been negative and noted that one                    remark was to call the members “messers” and that this remark was quickly followed by a request from the same person to fund his eye surgery “abroad”

          Moved Brother James seconded by Brother Brian
