Pastoral Council

MEMBERS 2017

The St Mary's Concord Parish Pastoral Council is entrusted with the task of reflecting on the parish's vision and mission. In a spirit of service to the community the Pastoral Council works with the parish priest and members of the parish team to foster and support appropriate pastoral action.
The Pastoral Council is a consultative body whose purpose is to meet with the parish priest and those responsible for the pastoral care in the parish to discern and discuss the mission of the parish community.

The Pastoral Council is made up of twelve parishioners and others, such as the parish priest and the principal of St Mary's School, who are members because of the office they hold (ex officio members). Members serve for a term of four years with nominations for six new members every two years.

Members: Vince Fragomeli (Chair), Jessica Di Bartolo (Secretary), Gaya Srikumar, Michael Thill, Ivo Favotto, Katia Naim,  Anna Marsella (Principal St Mary's School), Fr Paul Crowley (Parish Priest).

The Pastoral Council will next meet on  Tuesday 7 August 2018.

 

 

New Translation of the Missal

NEW TRANSLATION OF THE MASS

A new English translation of the prayers and responses we use for the Mass was introduced in November 2011. In the weeks leading up to the introduction Fr Paul Crowley wrote a series of short articles that appeared in the Parish Bulletin to help the community to prepare for the new translation of the Missal.
 
The articles on the new translation began in the Parish Newsletter for 21 August 2011 and continued each week until November 2011. The topics covered are listed below. To view the full text of each short article please go to the Missal New Translation Notes file at the "Parish Newsletter" tab.
