Vicariate Event Reports May 2012

During the Month of May we travelled across the Diocese visiting each of our 12 vicariates.  We had wonderful evenings meetings to which people came  with a sense of curiosity, hope, worry, duty, care, passion to name but a few reasons to become involved in the early steps of pastoral planning.  We would encourage you to read the summary from your vicariate event and to see how you might support some of the developments for your parish. The titles below refer to where the event was held:

Each event had a key note speaker who spoke on their perspective of Living Church. Often drawing from their own experiences of pastoral planning and implementation these speakers challenged and motivated those who heard them to think about what Living Church meant to them. We had six speakers in total: Fr. Jim Corkery, Bro. Pat Mullins, Mr. Tony Hanna, Mr. Martin Kennedy, Mr. Sean Goan and Fr. Eamonn Fitzgibbon.
