WALKING HUMBLY WITH OUR GOD


Over the past few weeks, as part of the “Walking Humbly with Our God” programme, a series of conversations has taken place in which parishioners were asked to think about the strengths and weaknesses of the parish.

Thank you to all those who gave their time and thought to this process.


The following is a summary of the common themes that emerged:


Strengths


Blessing of weekday Mass
Good liturgy
Good music: musicians & choir
Thriving Family Mass.
Lots of Altar Servers.
Good parish administration.
Good co-operation among
parish organisations/groups. .
Good social activities.

Weaknesses

Poor take-up of the Sacrament of Confession
No provision for parish teenage youth.
Weekend parish – many only attend Mass on Sunday and Holy Days.
No Catholic school in the parish.
Because we have managed without a priest in the past, there is the worry that we might be left without a resident parish priest.

Further feedback would be welcome. If you wish to add any further comments, please put them in writing and hand them to Canon Michael.
