Parish Pastoral Council
At their meeting on Tuesday evening last the Parish Pastoral Council finalised a brief questionnaire that will be issed to all households in the Parish before Christmas seeking their feedback on issues that are important to the development of our Faith Community. The feedback will support the planning of a meeting of Parishioners which it is hoped will take place before next Easter. The meeting also discussed a number of property matters that need to be addressed; at St.Mary's the reinstatement of the side gates, gutter cleaning, improvement to the PA system and painting, at St. Mochonog's internal painting of the tower, parking safety to the rear of the Church and remedial works to Church ruins in the old cemetery and at St. Patrick's the provision of external PA. There was also initial consideration of a number of matters which need to be addressed arising from the recently published "Administrative Regulations and Guidelines for Parishes". More detailed discussion will take place at the Council's next meeting on the 30th January 2018.
