In this section of our website you will find a series suggestions and information on different pastoral initiatives that might be of interest to your parish pastoral council or assembly or other groups within the parish.

These are not a list of things that a parish pastoral council or assembly should do or that they are expected to do. They are offered simply as ideas to stimulate the community’s own reflection on how they might respond to the various needs and opportunities within their own parish. Hopefully they offer enough information and resources for groups to get started if they choose to follow up on one of the suggestions.

We wish you well in all that you decide to do together.
