Pastoral Ministry – Diocesan course

We are now actively seeking to recruit for the next Pastoral Ministry Formation course which begins in September 2023. The course is ideal for ANY parishioner who seeks to develop their capacity to serve the parish in anyway which they believe the Lord is calling them. If you are a catechist – this course is for you. If you are a minister in any form – this course if for you. If you are not involved in any way – but would like to be – this course if for you! Interested? – then please do come to one of our information evenings which will be taking place around the Diocese in June. Here you will hear in more detail about the two courses, content of both, time commitment involved and costs including the role of parishes to support those who take on either of the courses.

Jane Andrews has recently completed this program, and would be delighted to discuss it with you. Please find her before the start of 09:30 Sunday Mass with the music group, or click here to email her.
