Busy autumn for Pastoral Council
MITCHELSTOWN Parish Pastoral Council held their first meeting of the Autumn season on Monday night in the Town Hall.
This is the 3rd and final year of the Council’s term. The Council committed itself again to continue to reach out and help develop the faith life of the Parish.
It has undertaken to help prepare a monthly Family Mass on the last Sunday of each month, this will be the 11.30am Mass. Families are already participating at the Ballygiblin and Kilacluig Masses.
This will now happen at the Parish Church on Sunday September 24. When the 3rd year of the 3 year term of Council ends in June 2018, a number of this present Council will retire.
In the intervening period the Parish will be seeking new nominations to replace them.
The proceedure will be explained in the coming months.
The Constitution envisages the Council being renewed every three years, new faces and new ideas, while retaining a number of the members of the previous Council.
