Parish Council

What We Offer

This team of parishioners serves the parish community, by working in collaboration with the parish priest, to consider and advise on all aspects of parish life and to promote the development of the parish. They are joined by the parish priest, parish secretary and two volunteers who represent the parishioners generally.  Membership of the group changes from time to time.  If you have any ideas, suggestions or maybe concerns you wish to pass on, just contact one of the team. You will find details of their role outlined below and can contact them via the Presbytery number (2343580) should you wish to get in touch. The Parish Council meets once a month, generally on a Thursday evening.

The team is made up of representatives from all areas of parish life:  Liturgy, Mission, Formation in Faith and Spirituality, Young Families and Youth, Finance and Premises, School, Pastoral Care and Social Life.
