Parishes Meeting

Salesians working in parishes met at Hothorpe Hall from Monday 25th October to Wednesday 27th October 2010.

All the Salesians involved in Parish ministry were joined by the Provincial, Fr Martin Coyle, and Fr Bob Gardner for the three days. The first speaker this year was Mr Martin Foster, who is in the Bishops’ Liturgy Department and is working on the introduction of the new translation of the Missal. As you can imagine, his presentation gave rise to lively debate. He was able to give us examples of the new translation alongside our present version and the Latin text. He also explained the process that will lead to the introduction of the new English version of the Missal.


The second speaker was Mrs Elizabeth Davies, who also works for the Bishops’ Conference, dealing with Marriage and Family Life. In view of the Rector Major’s specific request for our parishes to focus on Family Ministry, Mrs Davies spoke about her understanding of Family Ministry and Family Spirituality and introduced us to a wealth of resources.

As in the past, Hothorpe Hall was a pleasant venue for another useful and enjoyable meeting.
