Communion and hope at Guildford and East Granville

24/05/2012

The 'Faith in Our Future' Blog reports that the Catholic Diocese of Parramatta's Pastoral Planning team met with Parishioners of St Patrick’s Guildford and Holy Family Granville East on Wednesday 16 May, with participants eager to engage with the pastoral realities of the Diocese.

In particular, the Guildford and Granville East Parishioners were keen to explore the notion of mission in terms of evangelisation and the proclamation of our faith.

In the area of family life, there was an urgent sense of the need for families to take responsibility for the transmission of faith, supported by the wider Catholic community but above all by the practices of family prayer and family social activities that fostered the connection between faith and life.

The need to consult young people in their hopes and struggles was another recommendation of the night, with the need to build connections between our parishes and schools raised as an ongoing opportunity through regular visitations by our priests as well as lay ministers.
