PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL & FINANCE COMMITTEE

In a Meeting
Holy Bible and Prayer

The Parish Council aims to help parishioners to:
 

  • integrate their faith into daily life home, work, community

  • nourish and support their faith 

  • serve our wider community

The Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative body that helps the Parish Priest to organise the life and mission of the parish.  We listen and work together collaboratively as we respond to how is God is calling.

Along with the Parish Pastoral Council, we have a Finance Committee.  Any major financial decisions must be consulted between the Parish Priest and Finance Committee.  The members of the committee assist to administer the temporal goods of the parish and in allocating resources for pastoral work, maintenance and charitable donations.  

The members of the committee are Fr. Atli, Deacon Bill Ball, Gareth Davies, Sarah O'Donnell, Mark Ralphs and Sean Byrne.  

 

Typically the committee prepares an annual statement based on the priorities for the parish.  Each financial year we send the annual accounts to the Archdiocese of Liverpool and an open meeting is held where we explain the financial situation of the parish.

Our Synod

In 2018, Archbishop Malcolm McMahon announced a synod for our archdiocese. A synod is a meeting where members of the Church come together to review issues and make decisions.

We listened to thousands of Synod members and took into account over 25,000 submissions and 3,500 practical proposals.

The Synod took place on 19 and 20 June 2021. 39 recommendations were voted on, and in the light of this discernment a group of men and women, priests and lay people from our archdiocese started working on the Pastoral Plan, which was launched on the first Sunday of Advent on 28 November 2021.
