Parish Gathering 2019

In this week's Parish Blog there is a brief update on the preparations for the Parish Gathering 2019.  

One of the initiatives is to canvass as many parishioners as possible.

We live in challenging times where the cultural context in which the church exists is seismically changing, we need to pray, plan and face the challenge as a faith filled people-together!

We have posted a one-page Questionnaire on the parish website and we would encourage you to let us have your views.

All comments will be considered in structuring the actual Gathering itself.
