ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING AND ELECTION OF NEW TRAMORE PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL
Our AGM of Tramore Parish will take place on Monday 11 May at 7.30pm in Glor na Mara School hall. This meeting marks the end of our current Parish Council and we take this opportunity to thank them for their service and dedication in the last 5 years.
At this meeting, we will be electing 10 members of the community and parish to serve on the new Parish Pastoral Council. Next week, we will be inviting nominations for parishioners who wish to play a vital role in the life of our parish, in so many ways.
PURPOSE OF PARISH PASTORAL COUNCILS
Parish Pastoral Councils are structures of participation where the shared responsibility for the mission of the church and the genuine equality and action of all the baptised is both encouraged and sustained in the life of the parish.
The vibrancy of God’s life and love is manifested when all the baptised collaborate in the mission of Christ. Parish Pastoral Councils are leadership structures that enable priests and people to work together to build up dynamic Christian communities that are characterised by faith, evangelisation, worship and service. To this end they discern what is best for the parish in light of the gospel, the church’s teaching and what the Holy Spirit is saying through the People of God. Their major tasks involve reflection and planning, animation, action, communication, and evaluation on many aspects in the life of our parish.
If you would like to know more about the parish council, and might consider paying an important part in the life of the parish, speak to any of the priests or to current members of the council. Further details and nomination slips will be available next week.
