WALKING TOGETHER/ SYNODALITY QUESTIONNAIRE. Our parish response report will be available on  the Parish websites with paper copies at Masses this weekend. I suggest that we wait for the publication  of the diocesan report in early April. Then we can look at how to proceed further on how we take this  forward at our parish level in the light of the themes of the diocesan vision outlined by Archbishop Bernard. Meantime do take a look at our parish document.
