Outcomes of P.P.C meetings
Outcomes from Parish Pastoral Council meeting on Wednesday June 15th 2016
The Parish Pastoral Council, at its meeting on Wed. night last, recommended that the possibility of establishing a partnership with a parish in Africa be explored. Trócaire have indicated that they would be willing to advise and direct us and to locate a suitable parish in an area where Trócaire is working on the ground. We await word from the director of Trócaire, Eamon Meehan and then the issue will be discussed again at the next meeting.
It was also agreed that a Faith Formation programme for parishioners will be launched in September. A Faith Formation team has been appointed, comprising Denise Hughes, Frances Doyle, Chris O’Sullivan and Fr. Liam. The programme is entitled Word on Fire and will explore the
essentials of our Christian faith and how it brings meaning to our lives.
