DOES OUR MISSION RENEWAL EXTEND BEYOND CATHOLIC CIRCLES?
At our meeting of coordinators last week the notion that our dialogue with other parish communities might be extended to congregations of other Christian traditions in our neighbourhood was raised. This is significant because our annual round of ecumenical services is in question given post-Covid challenges and changes of personnel and situations at other churches. In short, they too are struggling with the question what is mission in our times.

UPDATE MARCH 2022
There has been a hiatus of a couple of months over the summer holiday period with regard to the ongoing discussions about the Parish Mission Renewal process.
