The Parish Pastoral Council held its last meeting of the year last week. Planning for 2016 was discussed including how we might celebrate two milestone anniversaries for OLR parish next year, namely, 110 years since the parish was established and 90 years since the construction of the OLR church building. 1st May 2016 was set as the day for the Parish Celebration. Please save the date!
In addition, the PPC noted that the Pope has declared CY2016 as a Jubilee Year of Mercy, and we discussed how our plans for next year might reflect this focus on our Lord’s mercy. Most important of all the topics discussed, the PPC was delighted to learn from Fr Alo that he had been reappointed to OLR for another 3 year term.
