“For the listening process to be robust I am now inviting views from parishioners from across the diocese in order to determine what are the most important issues facing the Church in the coming years, and how should we best respond.” - Bishop Duffy.
'Very engaged', 'occasionally engaged' and people 'not engaged in Church at all' are invited to be part of the dialogue, says Moderator, Fr Brendan Hoban.
“The Diocesan Assembly and the Listening Process identified ministry to young people as one of the four areas of pastoral action to be addressed.”
Results of feedback from 18-month listening survey in diocese's parishes highlights a range of concerns among young and old.
Assembly will offer broad directions for diocese which will be developed into a pastoral strategy for the next five years.
