I wish hereby to thank all the parishes and individuals who responded to the consultation about our ten-year mission plan You will be My Witnesses. We have had over 60 parish responses and 46 individual responses, of which 5 were from priests, 38 from laypersons, and 3 from groups of parishioners. The feedback will now be analysed to inform the final shape of the plan. A group of clergy and lay people are helping us with this so that the detail can be further tested and refined. The work will include a small number of meetings and comment on the material as it is developed. If you are interested in helping with this aspect of the plan, please let us know via the dedicated email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
The plan focused on putting Christ at the centre and developing missionary communities, while setting the objectives, aims and aspirations. The next phase is about developing specific strategies, means and ideas to help develop the plan in Pastoral Areas, parishes and schools and not least in the hearts of all.
