Wow! What a wonderful experience Saturday’s discernment day was for our parish. A total of 40 people turned up, on time, and with great willingness to participate.

We began with a few house-keeping details over a morning cuppa, then at 10am a prayerful video reflection to put us in the right frame of mind, and then we sat down in groups of approximately eight people to sit with the Holy Spirit and give prayerful thought to our chosen theme.

Two hours later, we had to ask the groups to finish up, and quite honestly, given half a chance, most would have stayed at the tables longer! It is not often that we get both energy and prayer together with such dedication to the task at hand, so to all who participated we say “well done, good and faithful servants’ and thank you for your presence and desire to be involved. You have made this day a complete success!
