Pastoral Area pulpit swap towards Synod 2020: In the joint Epiphany letter to all Catholics in the Pastoral Area, it was highlighted that as part of the Synod 2020 process and to demonstrate a deepening of collaborative ministry the priests would celebrate Sunday Mass in each church in Pastoral Area 3.
Next Sunday is the first of these occasions. The priests of the PA have felt called to have an ever-expanding ecclesial heart rather than a parochial heart this has meant that they have been looking at ways to grow together to best serve the Kingdom of God. By visiting each parish the priests will better be able to get to know different communities and people will be able to connect with priests from different local parishes. As part of this initiative, Fr Charles will be saying Mass at St John Vianney Parish.
Please keep in your prayers the Pastoral Area initiatives at this time.
