Parishes Working Together - Regional Consultations - HAVE YOUR SAY!


Faith and Life E-newsletter
Catholic Diocese of Wollongong
March 2012
Regional Consultations
Have Your Say!
Our Diocesan Pastoral Plan 2011-2015, Bearers of Christ's Love, is the fruit of over 2,000 participants reflecting on how we can best serve God's mission into the future. A key goal of our plan is "to make sure that our community models and structures will address the current and emerging needs in our Diocese." As such, Bishop Peter Ingham has invited us to participate in the Parishes Working Together consultation process.

So far in this process each parish has been consulted and now Bishop Peter Ingham is inviting parish communities in each region to gather with other parishes in their region for a regional consultation process. You are invited to have your say about what you believe is the best way for your region to be configured so that we can be bearers of Christ's love into the future.

Come along to consider Mass times, the number of priests, parish boundaries and support for sacramental preparation and the many ministries and services in your region. It's a great opportunity to gather with other Catholics in your region to celebrate the strength of our unity, and the many gifts we can offer to share God's love and build up the church.

Make sure your community is represented as we plan for the future. If you were unable to take part in your own parish consultation session, you are still invited to attend your regional session.
