There has been a Parish Pastoral Council in Newbridge for many years. The Council is a partnership of priests and laypeople who together work to build up the Christian Community in Newbridge. It is concerned with deepening faith through education and celebration of the sacraments, future planning for the parish, and developing lay participation. Its focus is reflected in its Mission Statement.
“We, the members of St. Conleths Parish Pastoral Council, inspired by the model of Jesus, will work together to bring about a growth in faith through prayer, worship, service and celebration of the sacraments. We will strive to make our parish a place where people are welcomed, cared for and supported.”
Since 2002 the Parish Pastoral Council has undertaken various projects, including:
- Funeral Ministry,
- Welcome events for foreign nationals and newcomers to the parish,
- St. Conleths Parish Cancer Group,
- Ministry Group Weekends,
- New First Holy Communion Programme,
- Parish Youth Mission,
- Reach Out Campaign,
- First Communion Visitation.
Any member of the Parish Pastoral Council can be contacted through the Parish Office at 045 431394. We would welcome suggestions from parishioners about issues we should look at.
