The Parish Pastoral
Council (PPC) has been established to advise the Parish Priest on the pastoral
development of the parish. The Parish Priest is its president and any baptised
Catholic in the parish may be nominated to be one of its ordinary members, as
in its 'Statutes'. Current members are listed below,
An initial three year Pastoral Development Plan was drafted by the Council based on Parishioners' views on what is attractive about the parish and what needs to be done. These views were gathered at a 'Listening Meeting' in 2012.The resulting plan was for the years 2016 to 2020. As second such listening process started in 2019.
Guided by these listening
meetings, the Council proposes parish development initiatives. The more
important of these are reported in a series of 'Look Back and Learn' memos (see
below). In addition, the Council enables a parish response to requests from the
Archbishop including: organising the 2020 World Day of the Sick and reporting
parishioners' views on the role of the Laity. Minutes of the Council's meetings
are published and available on this website (see below).
