On October 15, a group of interested parishioners made a start on looking at how the parish can better engage families with young children. Our discussion shifted to include the need to engage others who are not strongly connected with our parish. A number of suggestions were made and recorded for building stronger community.
On Wednesday, November 26, at 7p.m., in the church hall, the discussion continues. We will be looking at what our roles are as a church community and as individual parishioners. What would our ideal parish look like? How close are we to that ideal?
We invite those who attended the first meeting to return (and bring a friend!) We also hope to see other interested parishioners from the congregation, the various ministry groups and Parish Council members. For more information, call Brenda Cooper at 575-0695.
This Fall we are continuing our campaign against global hunger. One Human Family Food For All that was launched by Pope Francis. Global hunger is a grave injustice and urgently needs to be addressed. Under the slogan Sow Much Love, we are inviting you to join our Fall action campaign to educate yourself and others about the role of family farmers as stewards of the world’s seeds. Seeds are the heritage of family farmers and peasants, who preserve them to feed their families, their communities and the world. Next week there will be information concerning the plight of small farmers against the large seed conglomerates. Please take time to read the information and educate yourself and others on this very important issue.
