The past few years have seen our parishes link more closely. Much of the training is now shared as are the retreats, pilgrimages and outings. For example the recently completed “Operation Transformation” (of the spirit) had participants from a wide area. Clinton our Pastoral Worker, is playing a vital role in this process. We’re lucky that Mary and Anne, Presentation Sisters living in Fortlawn are also working in a wider area.
What will our Parishes look like in 5 years? How to communicate with the upcoming generation and share the treasures we have in our faith?
It is these questions that all of us must address in the cluster parishes and overall in the diocese to ensure a good future. For this reason an Assembly for all parishioners is being planned for the Autumn. Let us keep this intention in our prayers.
