FTiH – Our Partnership Proposals

Forward Together in Hope asks us to look ahead to what might be in store for our parish and the wider Catholic community in our diocese. We have recently completed a document known as Our Partnership Proposals with the other members of our deanery. This has been submitted to the diocese for consideration. We will share further news and updates when they are available. In the meantime you can discuss what this means for us in our parish meetings for Forward Together in Hope and also contact the office if you have any questions.
