The focus of the first executive meeting was planning for the first meeting of the Diocesan Pastoral Council to be held in St Patrick’s Grammar School on Saturday 9 October. The Council will be addressed by Fr Michael Drumm in the morning and in the afternoon the members will have a opportunity to volunteer to join one of the eight commissions that will work on behalf of the Diocesan Pastoral Council. Members will be asked to indicate which of the commissions would be of most interest to them and at the Council meeting two members of the Council will be selected to serve on each of the commissions.
Two amendments to the constitution will be put to the members. The first is that the Primary and Post-Primary Advisers for Religious Education be asked to join the executive and that instead of there being one chairperson that the Council adopts co-chairs to lead the Council.
Registration, tea and coffee will begin at 10.30 with the meeting beginning promptly at 11.00am on the morning of Saturday 9 October. The meeting will conclude at 4.30pm.
