Pastoral Notes 16th October, 2016

It is sometime since the Bishop visited our parish and deanery, apart from the Confirmation Mass. Later in November he hopes to come to our pastoral area to speak with not only the clergy as a group but also with the whole pastoral council, representing both clergy and laity. If you have any concerns that you would like raised at that time, do please let Canon John know. I believe these meetings will concern our particular area, as the Bishop has a rolling programme to do the same in all the pastoral areas of the diocese. Quite a busy load!
On a quite different note, we are soon coming to the month of November when we remember all the deceased and by implication those who have been bereaved.
