Your enthusiastic support for the Listening process gave me a sense of great hope and the themes which emerged from the process have over the past few months been considered by Working Groups in the Diocese comprised of your fellow Laity, Clergy and Religious. The fruits of their efforts have resulted in a Pastoral Plan which will be launched in the Waterfront Hall on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th September 2013.
I earnestly hope that Parishioners from every Parish in the Dioceses will attend the Congress as Delegates. The event presents a real opportunity for all of us in the Diocese to strike out on a new path and to renew our commitment.
To close the Congress there will be a celebratory concert in the evening of the Saturday featuring a wide range of talent from the diocese including The Priests. Tickets for the Concert will be available at a cost of £20. Please let your Parish Priest know if you would like to attend.
Thank yo for taking the time to read this and I do hope you will be able to attend the Congress.
Members of the Pastoral Council and the LOFT Group will represent the Parish at the Diocesan Congress but if you might be interested in attending the Congress, please leave your name into the Parish Office by the 14th June.
