Parish Family Groups

What are Parish Family Groups?

Groups of about ten households (30-40 people) who meet monthly for social events. Anyone can come - Catholic or not!

 

Why are they important?

Often when we come to Mass we don't know many people. Sometimes we know faces but not names. About five hundred people come to Mass here, so it's easy to get lost in the crowd. The idea is that they will help people get to know each other, make new friends and support one another. We want them to be fun! 

 

Are they just for families?

They're for everyone. They are about the family which is the parish.

 

Does this happen in other parishes?

Yes, you can read more about them on the Family Group Movement website

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
John 13:34-35
 
Parish Family Groups “all together now”!
We are planning a Grand Bring & Buy / Recycling Sale, in conjunction with other groups in the parish. Please save any special articles you would like to share with another for the Summer Sale.
