This last week I attended a meeting of the Parish Finance Committee on Monday evening followed by a meeting at school on Tuesday evening. This has in fact been quite a 'light' week for evening meetings. Whilst these and other meetings are very important I must admit that I wouldn't put attendance at them very high on my list of, 'Things I enjoy most about being a Parish Priest'!
Nevertheless they are a very necessary part of parish life and run alongside the celebration of the Sacraments and my other 'priestly' duties. I very much appreciate the many hours that so many people give of their time and effort for the good of our parish and school.
