We congratulate the following elected Officers of Parish Pastoral Council (PPC)

Chair – Christine Lambert
Vice-Chair – Elizabeth Lizzio
Secretary –  Maureen Kelly

We welcome all Members to the PPC who will work together with the support of the whole Parish for the greater glory of God. (Click on the photo of the PPC members below to enlarge it)

An initial task is for the PPC to consider the 5 priority focus areas outlined by Fr Francis to establish a definition, remit and likely activities of each as well as links to existing groups and activities.

The five priority areas are:

  • Building Community
  • Social Justice
  • Spirituality
  • Youth
  • Ecumenism

The Finance Group and a new Parish Maintenance Group support the fabric of the Parish as well as its mission and are represented on, and will work alongside, the PPC.

Mark James will co-ordinate the Parish Maintenance Group, taking over from Eamon Rafferty who we thank sincerely for his magnificent contribution over the last few years.

Please see the Minutes of the PPC Meeting held on 18 January 2021: Action Minutes 21.01.18

The next meeting of the PPC is on 16 February 2021.
We welcome all suggestions from Parishioners and at the moment the easiest way to share these would be via the Parish Pastoral Council email:
