Parish Pastoral Council

It’s been a few months since our last meeting so the next is now scheduled for the final Tuesday of this month – 25th September. The main item for discussion – led by Mr Ken Garland – will be the Plenary Council which has been scheduled for 2020.

Father Peter Maher, editor of The Swag – a magazine produced by the National Council of Priests – writes the following:

“There are a number of comments on the Plenary Council 2020. The efforts of some to contribute to this event are growing dim as they are ignored, dismissed or summarised into compliance. The bishop’s cry, everything’s on the table, already seems a distant hope for some who have tried to get something on the table. People are slowly losing hope as details emerge such as who will be present, how they will be chosen and only bishops get a vote. The church is not a democracy and if we are unsure about this, many fear that the plenary council will underline this.”

All are welcome to come to the meeting of the PPC and listen to Ken as well as contributions from others. Please advise Elizabeth. Refreshments and conviviality afterwards.
