Parish to Mission – Phase Two:
The second part of the Diocesan “Listening Process” will take place here at St Joseph’s on Wednesday 18th May at 7.30pm in the Church Hall. The three questions we are being asked to consider are:
The parish is the presence of the Church in a given territory, an environment for hearing God’s word, for growth in the Christian life, for dialogue, proclamation, charitable outreach, worship and celebration. In all its activities the parish encourages and trains its members to be evangelizers. (Evangelii Gaudium 28)
What, within our current practice as a parish and diocese, helps to fulfil this vision?
What would our parish and diocese look like if this vision was being fully lived?
What practical steps can we take to move towards that fully lived reality?
