Reminder of our Parish Gathering on this Monday 4th March in Canon O’Donovan Centre at 7.30p.m These meetings have been arranged following Bishop Ray’s Pastoral letter, Moving Forward in Hope. In preparation for the gathering please 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. What are the most important ministries we want from Priests in the Pastoral Area?

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