In a meeting in October Bishop Richard sketched-out for us his vision for the future of the diocese (mission, prayer, formation). He is confident that we, as a diocese, can make the necessary changes that are needed for us to work successfully with fewer priests in the future. But changes will be necessary – and this is a joyful moment of opportunity and faith. There was much discussion about the vocation of the lay faithful: what is your vocation and how do you seek to live it out? Watch this video to see Bishop Richard talk about this important activity and below view the slides presented by Bishop Richard in the October meeting.
