Dear parishioners,

As announced at masses last weekend following the Archbishop’s pastoral letter, James, Mary and I have been asked to be your delegates to co-ordinate our response as a parish to the Synodal listening exercise. This is an historic opportunity to make known your views on the future direction of the Church as it seeks to ‘journey together’ and we urge you to make your views known so that we can better represent the parish. Consider the following questions:

What are the ways in which your parish most successfully brings people together?

Reflecting on 16 months of the pandemic, how has participation in your parish been affected? Were these issues there before?

Are we looking in or are we looking out, as a parish community? Can we do both effectively?

How would you see the best way forward for the parish views to be represented, meetings in the community centre, zoom meetings, a mix of the two?

Please consider these questions and feel free to respond by emailing myself, Mary or  James, at,

and we will collate your answers.

Try and watch the recording of our Evangelisation workshop or read the notes of the meeting as this was the launch for our parish of the Synodal process and has a great deal of relevance to our response, it’s not too late to let us know your own ideas but will give you an idea of the kind of issues we were looking at.

James, Liam and Mary.
