Parish Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting will be held on Sunday October 3 at 11:00 am on Zoom, after our Sunday Zoom Mass. Please attend if you are able to as updates will be provided and inputs sought on the following:
  • Progress on the “Take the Way of the Gospel” initiated by the Archdiocese on Pentecost Sunday.
  • Investment of some of our cash in a Listed Investment Company.
 

Take the way of the Gospel

Archbishop Peter is calling on laypeople and clergy in the Archdiocese of Melbourne to consider how might we invite people into the fullness of the Gospel of life, and do so with a renewed sense of vibrancy and vitality. Meetings between the Archdiocese and parish representatives and clergy have commenced and parishes have been encouraged to engage in discussions as a community to discern how we might re-imagine our parish community as part of a Mission.
