Parish Pastoral Council

The Parish Pastoral Council is a leadership group through which priests and people work together as partners in furthering the mission of Christ in their own place. The primary ministry of the Parish Pastoral Council is to collaborate in planning the way forward for the parish by formulating a pastoral vision. We try to do this in the context of –       the circumstances of the parish, –       in the light of the gospel, –       the teaching of the Church, –       reading the ‘signs of the times’ and –       being attentive to the reflections of the members of our community We are acutely aware of the need for many lay women and men to become involved in making our parish a more vibrant community – one that is capable of capturing the hearts and minds of our young and of reaching out to the many needs in our world. We would warmly welcome your contribution.

Consultations with the Parish 2012

The Pastoral Council organised for open forums to be held in the churches of the parish during Autumn 2012. This was to listen to the voice of the community about their hopes and concerns for the future of our parish. The results of these consultations are available here:
