Thank  You  :  Parish Listening Event

Deep thanks to all who attended the Parish Listening Event on last Thursday night. The atmosphere was lively, the spirit was positive and the parishioners really engaged with the questions posed.‘Twas great


Many of those present took away a spare copy of the questionnaire in order to give it them to a family member or a friend. If you were given one of these forms, please give it some thought and then write out your  ideas. Return the form  anonymously  on or before next Sunday, 20th May. Your form will be combined with the ones filled in at the  Listening.


In this way, we can hear from an even wider cross section of parishioners, and this will be a great help.


Please “post” your filled-in form through the letter box at Fr. Moloney’s house on Main Street or into the special box placed inside the church front porch.

Remember,  do  not  put you name on the form.       

Thank you very much.
