Church Renewal Committee Report
The Church Renewal Committee met this week with architect Jesse Mowbray. Jesse outlined to the committee the terms of the Client and Architect Agreement and responded to questions. The committee passed the motion that Fr Paul sign the agreement, which formally commissioned Jesse to develop three possible design concepts for the internal renewal of the church. After completing exploratory work on the building, and spending time within the parish community during the rest of this year, Jesse will spend the first half of next year developing proposals of how the church can best be arranged to realise the vision articulated by parishioners through the consultation process.
Following the recent formation workshops, Ministers of the Word and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion have been issued with name tags. As time goes on, name tags will be provided to other ministers and parishioners who request them.
Your name tag, of course, is only useful if you wear it! Fr Paul would like to see everybody who has a name tag wearing it so we can all get to know each other a little more, and at least be able to call people by name more often. It’s a simple way of strengthening our relationships with each other and building up our parish community. So please remember to bring your name tag with you to Mass.
