PARISH AWAKENING: Further to the announcement I made last Sunday, I would now like to encourage everyone to begin to prepare for 10th October. While I want it to be fluid, an occasion when people can come and go as they wish, I also want us to think of how things might look in the months and years that follow. For example, it will be helpful if all our societies and groups reflect on what they need. Do you require new members, and if so, how many? Do you need to restructure in any way? Do we need to take any new initiatives? If we all begin to set ourselves definite targets, then there is every reason to think that we will make a real difference.
