The Word Who is Life – Towards 2030

Update on the Word Who Is Life – see Word Who Is Life page linking all relevant content.

The meeting, last week, of the diocesan priests with the bishop, was a positive and hopeful occasion.  Changes at diocesan level concerning lay officers and appointments are to take place and a few parishes will move deaneries (creating 12, rather than 13, deaneries; but this doesn’t affect us).  In the next 7 years, as priests retire and die, the sharing-out of priests and parishes will gradually moderate and change, so that by 2030 a new look will be in place.  What this actually means for us, here, Bishop Richard will explain at the meeting on Thursday 8th November, Chatsmore School, at 7.00pm – to which I hope lots of you will come.  If you have questions, do ask – but, at this stage, I may not yet be able to answer them!
