A number of meetings have taken place throughout June and July. Summaries and minutes are below for three of these meetings:

Over the last two months, the transition team has been gathering together essential information on facilities; pastoral ministry & evangelization; and finances. As well, they have created and implemented a process for the naming process of our new parish and organised an evening of adoration, praying for transition, in 9 of our parish's 11 churches on 18th July.
