Parish Pastoral Council Update

The eighth meeting of the Parish Pastoral Council for the year was held on Tuesday 11th Sept in the parish centre with Anna-Marie McGann in the chair. Kishani led us in a prayer for Youth. This led to further discussion on the parish’s involvement in the Diocesan Youth Ministry Partnership Program 2019. Whilst applications for participation in this program for 2019 are now closed, it was decided that a subcommittee would meet further with Fr Alan to develop realistic goals and focus for youth ministry in the parish.

Our parish response to the Bishops’ appeal to share concerns and ideas for the Plenary Council will begin with the viewing of a short video presentation at all masses on the weekend of Oct 27/28. There will be follow up, day and evening, meetings for interested parishioners on Tuesday 30th Oct and also later during Advent.

The nomination process for new members of the Parish Council will begin at Masses on first and second weekends of October. An information session for those nominated will be held on Sunday 11th November at 11.15am.
