Parish Pastoral Council

 

Early in 2010 a group of Parishioners met to discuss what the laity of the Parish could do to assist the clergy in the mission of our Church both to ourselves and to the wider world, and the result of that was a determination to re-create the PPC. Accordingly, at the direction of our Parish Priest, an election was held on Sunday 24 October 2010 and nine new PPC councillors were elected.The inaugural meeting of the PPC took place on 25 November 2010 and the Council will meet about four times a year thereafter. All of our new Councillors pledged themselves to the service of the Parish at a commissioning ceremony held at Mass on Sunday 31 October 2010.

Every time there was an election, all Councillors pledged themselves to the service of the Parish at a 10.30 Mass shortly after the election.

Following the catastrophic fire in July 2015, the decision was made to retire the PPC in its current format and instead form small groups to deal with each event/decision as they arose, to put to best use as many of the congregation as possible.
