The Priests of the Parish, Parish Pastoral Worker, and Parish Pastoral Council wish all parishioners a very joyful and peaceful Christmas and all God’s choicest blessings throughout the New Year.
May the peace and joy of Christ fill your hearts and homes!
Share Your Gifts
We would like to thank all parishioners who responded to our Parish Pastoral Council’s Share Your Gifts initiative by either joining a Ministry Group in the parish or suggesting areas of need in the community. We will be following up with each of you in the coming weeks.
Parishioners may recall that, during the Listening Process held during the autumn of 2010, the proposal was made that parishioners should have the opportunity to submit suggestions on an ongoing basis. Suggestion boxes have now been placed in each of the parish churches for this purpose, to give you an opportunity to have your say. If you have any suggestions as to how the spiritual and community life within our Parish could be improved please use one of the Forms provided (which are available beside the box) and place it in the Suggestion Box.
These suggestions will be submitted for consideration by the Parish Pastoral Council (which meets on a monthly basis) and, where appropriate, they will be acted upon. The Parish Pastoral Council will from time to time publish details, in the Newsletter, the website www.jbmparish.com or by other means, of those suggestions received and considered and if and how they will be acted upon. If you provide contact details we can respond to you directly concerning your specific suggestion(s). The Parish Pastoral Council look forward to hearing from you!
