Building Hope Overview
In his Easter Pastoral letter, Archbishop Dermot said it is time now for the whole diocesan family to address the specific challenges we face as a diocese. The Building Hope Task Force Report proposed a strategy for renewing our mission as God’s people, keeping in mind that our primary purpose is to accompany people today towards an encounter with the Lord Jesus.
Building on the recent Synodal Gathering held in March, the Archbishop is inviting all parish teams, parish pastoral councils and parish finance committees to lead their parish in a discussion of the gifts and talents available to them, the education and formation they need, and the parish partnerships that make most sense in their locality.

When: Wednesday 8th June from 7.30pm to 9.30pm
