Deanery Pastoral Councils

The bishop has written recently that he wishes to meet with lay people, as well as clergy, from around the Diocese to share concerns, developments and ways forward.

He is considering a Diocesan Pastoral Council based on the existing Deanery Pastoral Councils. However he is also aware that all Deanery Pastoral Councils have not the number of lay representatives that would make this work.

The last Council met on Thursday with parish priests, one parish lay representative and the Head and chaplain of Cardinal Allen School.

It would be helpful if parishes could provide two parishioners who are involved with the parish who could be representatives. Are you one of these people for our parish? – Talk to Fr Peter.

The Next Deanery Pastoral Council is on Thursday, 3 October at 7.00pm at St Mary’s.
