Parish ‘Listening Event’
The aim of the ‘Listening’ Event is to give parishioners the opportunity to express t heir views on what is helpful and/or unhelpful about parish life as they experience it. And, also, to consider how we, as a Faith community, might go about developing parish life in the next few years. Challenges and opportunities lie ahead.
About 100 people from the parishes of our Deanery attended the planning meeting in St. Ailbe’s Hall on last Thursday – 15 from Emly.
Our parish ‘Listening’ Event will be on Thursday 10th May, 8.00 – 9.30pm, in St. Ailbe’s Parish Hall. Each parishioner is invited, whether you are a regular church-goer or are not
It would be appreciated if organisations in the parish would keep this date free of events so as to enable people to attend the ‘Listening’ Event.
