Pastoral Notes 17th March, 2019

Bishop Peter has launched a new initiative for all churches in our parishes. There will be a day of reflection initially, focussing on: what we are proud of in our local area – what the Catholic community does well – what are the opportunities for us to be more outward looking, and who are we missing? and also how we would use new leadership roles in our local area.

Responses would be written up for the Pastoral Area Council to study, taking note of which initiatives could be started immediately and which will need more support. This process aims to produce a Mission plan for the local Catholic community, looking beyond our own churches.
