WE WOULD LIKE TO SAY A BIG THANK YOU TO FR. DAMIEN BRESNAHAN SMA, who was with us for the month of July. He has impressed us with his kindness, sincere and big smile. We pray for the success of his work in Dromantine.


WE ARE WELCOME NEW PRIEST FR. PAT KELLY SMA. Fr Pat will stay with us for the month of August. He is from Belfast in Ireland and worked as a missionary priest in Liberia in West Africa and then spent almost 20 years helping to establish the SMA International Development Office in Philippines and India – to prepare missionary priests in both places to work in Africa. We wish him a happy and relaxing stay.

Renewal and the Restructuring of our diocese

Stewards of the Gospel: Up-Date on the Process

Steward of the Gospel  -  All parishioners are warmly invited to attend the next Renewal Parish Meeting on Monday 10th September 2018 in the church at 7pm. This will be an opportunity to discuss how we can help our priest and the parish by putting parishioners ideas for Renewal into action. In preparation for this meeting, a copy of the Renewal Action Plan Targets for Working Party Groups - 2018 & Beyond is now available on the noticeboard inside the porch. Please take a look and write your name in the space provided on the form to show which Working Party you would like to part of at the Parish Renewal meeting.

Steward of the Gospel - Feedback from the Diocese in response to Parishes replies to the First Proposal for Renewal and Restructuring of our Diocese. This document is now available on the porch noticeboard, for you to read. Whilst it is a lengthy document, you are encouraged to read it, as it does address the concerns which parishioners raised at our parish meeting in January this year. The Diocese will publish their Vision document, in which Bishop Alan will outline his decisions about the future shape of our diocese in November. During 2019, the Diocese will start the implementation phase of this process and work towards the vision as set out. 


FOR YOUR DIARY. 25th August & 1st September Parish Office is CLOSED.
