Parish Pastoral Council

It is almost 1 year since the Parish Pastoral Council was set up in our parish. During this year we have made some progress in the following areas:

* Congregational singing at the 10am Mass in the Oratory.

* Corpus Christi Procession.

* Involving families in the offertory processions in all churches.

* Youth trip to Medugorje.

* Lenten Scripture and sharing Group.

* Meeting with various Parish based groups.

On the agenda for the coming months:

* A Parish Mission for 2013.

* A Baptism Ministry whereby parents and godparents will attend a talk on the very important role they have to play in the life of the child in relation to the Sacraments

On Sat. 8th Sept. the Parish Pastoral Council attended a meeting in Strabane for all councils of the Diocese. It was good to meet with other parishes & leaders and get new inspiration for the coming year. If you wish to get in touch with the Parish Pastoral Council you can do so by email to the parish or log on to the Parish website.
