Pastoral Council Report

On Tuesday 13 March the Parish Pastoral Council held its second meeting for the year. We welcomed the new Principal of St Joseph’s Primary School, Michelle Moore, to the council. Michelle shared with us her philosophies around education and her aspirations to strengthen the relationship between the school community and the parish.

During the meeting we discussed a range of potential areas of interest for our “Hot Button” sessions which will be held in June and August this year. We have tentatively agreed on four important topics and details of these will be released once we have confirmed speakers which we hope to lock in over the coming months.

We also discussed the suggestion from one of our parishioners around a desire to enhance the welcome that we provide to new parishioners who are introduced to our community via either Baptism or commencement of a new child in Prep at St Joseph’s Primary School and intend doing some work to strengthen our welcome. Should you wish to provide feedback to or have suggestions for the Parish Pastoral Council, please come and say hello to one of the members at our weekly mass or alternatively send us an email.
