St Mary's Newslast updated : 6/12/2013
Parish Reports & looking to the future:Last Sunday, the First Sunday of Advent, which marked the beginning of this New Church Year, we presented a brief Report in St Mary’s and Our Lady & St Bernard’s Parish, which I (Father Niall) had prepared after talking with the Our Lady & St Bernard’s Parish Advisory Group and the St Mary’s Parish Council. There are still copies available with the invitation for people to consider if there is any way they might wish to help. This Report is intended as a celebration of all that is already taking place in our Parish Communities and an opportunity for us all to consider the best way forward. It has been a time of change in our whole LPA over the last few months, and we hope now as we move into Advent, a season of hope and new beginnings, that we will be able to move forward in our calling the be a sign of the Kingdom of God in this area.
