Archbishop Kieran O’Reilly intends drawing up a pastoral plan for all parishes for the next 5-10 years and is anxious to hear the views of parishioners across the diocese in this listening process.
Many people feel confused and uncertain about beliefs and practices, within the Church and society in general, that previously seemed set in stone.
Critical issues will be discussed; your opinions will be valued and sent forward to guide the formation of a realistic pastoral plan. This listening process also acknowledges with humility the past wrongs of the Church.
You are invited to come and share your views; you could bring a friend as well. All are welcome including those who, for various reasons, have left our church communities.
