The meeting started with a prayer.
T.L. led the discussion- It was felt we needed more time for discussion, Pope Francis is concerned that everyone is included and the process is not confrontational. Tony had provided notes on the WhatsApp, this could be shared on the Parish What’sApp.
Plan-October Refelection meeting October 18th at 7.30 will be open to all the Parish, for the first hour for discussion so everyone is included.
Tony will speak at both Masses on October the 7th, 8th.
Season of Creation-

Finance and Maintenance-
M.M. Provided an update on the finances. S.H. will email the figures sent from A.C. The finance will be reviewed every quarter.
The kitchen now has a new floor. Health and Safety file to be updated.
The hedge issue has been resolved. It was felt the hedge needs to be lower near the exit as it’s difficult to leave the car park.
The raffle money from the successful welcoming social has been put into the Parish funds. This was a very successful event.
