Welcome to Week 2 of our Parish Renewal Program.
This week celebrates the role of our parish as an authentic community of faith – where people are welcomed, known and loved. It is a place of care, support and outreach – with a clear mission to live the values of the Gospel. That means that we have a responsibility to use our gifts and talents for the benefit of others. So please be involved in one of our Groups and Ministries – either for the first time or in a continuing role. Your involvement will be personally rewarding and a great contribution to our vibrant parish. This weekend we will hear from members of the Parish Leadership Team, who will share with us the impact of faith and St Mary’s in their lives and how important it is for us all to make our own contribution to parish life. We thank them for doing so!
A reminder of the special Parishioner Forums this weekend. These are a key part of the Renewal Program and are two opportunities for you to contribute to the discussion about the future of our great parish. So join us either at 6.45pm Saturday – (following 6.00pm Mass) or on Sunday morning at 9.15am (following 8.30am Mass and before 10.30am Mass). The Forums will run for 45 mins and for convenience will be held in the church. Please join us.
Thoughts from our Leadership Team
Q: Why is it important to be actively engaged in parish Groups & Ministries?
“It is personally rewarding, while building community and a sense of collective will – bringing vibrancy and greater reach to the work of the parish.”
“We’ve all been given special gifts and talents by God – engaging in parish Groups and Ministries is a way of giving thanks for those gifts.”
“True engagement through being involved with our talents is not only good for the Kingdom of God but makes life more satisfying and rewarding.”
