AMALAGAMATION OF PARISHES
The Steering Committee for the amalgamation of Caboolture and Stanley River Parishes, for our movement into one new parish, meet last week on 8th August. Our discussion covered a number of important areas: first, the need for consultation on pastoral issues that will arise with the creation of a new parish (including dates of times for these consultations), and particularly around the change of Sun-day Mass times; second, the processes that need to be put in place between now and the end of the year for formation of one new Parish Council and one Finance Council (more of this in the weeks to come); third, and significantly, the formation of a prayer that we can all pray together at our Sunday Masses in preparation for the creation of our new parish; and, fourth, the naming of our new parish.
The Consultation Times for our communities are as follows:
As we amalgamate our two parishes, we will be forming one new parish entity, as proposed, from January 1st 2020. This parish will need a new name. While the various names of our Churches will remain: St Michael’s, Little Flower, St Mary’s, and St Peter’s; we will require a new whole of parish name. The Committee is asking for suggestions and submissions from parishioners for this new parish name. This is a very important issue, as our new parish name will identify us as a particular section of God’s people within the Catholic Archdiocese of Brisbane. If you would like to submit a proposal for our new name, please send this to Caboolture Parish Office at email@example.com. After the Committee’s discernment, the proposed name will be presented to Archbishop Mark for approval.
The following is our prayer in preparation for our amalgamation, which will be included into our Sunday Prayers of the Faithful. May it bring God’s graceful blessings on us all as we venture into our future.
We pray: That with a profound openness to the Spirit, courage, humility and wisdom, we form a new parish unity formed for God’s mission.
