The bishops along with the pastoral area steering team are now in the process of creating a final draft of the pastoral areas of the diocese.

It is expected that the final draft will be made available to parishes for final consideration on the weekend of 25/26 April.  Parishioners will have until Friday, 22 May to make known any views or concerns they have with regard to the proposed pastoral areas.  At that stage the bishops will make their final decisions on the pastoral areas and the official pastoral area map will be made widely available in early June.
