PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL

on . Hits: 1988

Parish CouncilThe new Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) had its inaugural meeting on May 18th. It comprises 8 parishioners who have volunteered for the task. The meeting began with prayer and scripture and then each member introduced him or herself and gave a little background information.

 

Fr. Loughran gave an outline of the PPC as an instrument of the Kingdom of God. In all things to do with the PPC the test was: will this action enhance the Kingdom of God in our parish? The members agreed that they should spend some time together in prayer and reflection; and an afternoon at Tabor will be arranged.

 

Some of the topics covered were: The Hodovo Project; Catechetical Programmes; Evangelisation; Preston Guild & the Bishop’s Visitation. They also spent some time considering that next year is the 40th anniversary of the opening of the parish (not the church!) and what events could be organised to celebrate this event.

 

The minutes of the meeting will be displayed, as usual, on the church notice board.

 

The Members are:  Stephen Connolly, Anne Dewhurst, Jean Hampson, Sue Lawrenson, Janet Metcalf, Graham Templeton & Angela Waddingham.

 

Jonathan Day also joined the Parish Council on 15/06/10
