In his recent Pastoral Letter, Bishop Ray invites all parishioners to participate in a consultation process to shape the future of Pastoral Areas and Parishes. A Parish Listening Evening will be held in our own parish on Monday February 26th at 7.30pm. As preparation for this meeting, you are invited to reflect on the following two questions:
1. Without the presence of a priest to lead and coordinate, what aspects of parish life could we, the laity, take responsibility for and organise ourselves?
2. Where do we see scope for co-operation with neighbouring parishes in our Pastoral Area of St John’s & The Spa?
Many thanks for your support and assistance for this consultation.
