In his Pastoral letter, Moving Forward in Hope, Bishop Ray invites all parishioners to participate in a consultation process to shape the future of pastoral areas and parishes.  A consultation gathering will be held in Millstreet Parish on Monday 4th March in Canon O’Donovan Centre at 7.30p.m. In preparation for the gathering, please take a copy of the Pastoral letter from the back of church and reflect on these questions:

  1. Without the presence of a priest to lead & 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?
  3. Given what Bishop Ray has said about reducing numbers & increasing age, what do we want to say to priests?

Your support and input in this process is important & appreciated.
