Nominating members of a new parish assembly

The Parish Assembly has served much longer than its three-year term – due to Covid19 – so it’s time to nominate new members for the next assembly.

What is the Parish Assembly? 

A Parish Assembly is a group of people who are representative of the faith community — of the parish. Working closely with the priests, they help to create an experience of belonging and participation in the life of our parish. An assembly is normally set up every three years (Covid caused the last term to be extended!). 

Members meet once a month from September to May inclusive. Members of the assembly spend part of their time discussing and planning church tasks/events and part of their time implementing these tasks/events with the help and support of other parishioners.

What is the Assembly about? 

The Assembly is about pastoral, spiritual and the faith life of the members of our parish. It will address and identify the needs of our parish and support all age groups in their faith journey. The members will work together to sustain a vibrant faith community in our parish which is in tune with the Gospel. 

What is the Assembly not about? The Assembly is not responsible for finances, employees, buildings or maintenance of the parish. It also will not duplicate services which other people already involved in various ministries provide in the parish.
