St. Laurence’s Parishioners’ Open Meeting (Forum)

This is where the whole Parish comes together to keep the Parish running.

See below for the minutes of previous meetings.

The Constitution is here.

A few years ago we carried out a consultation exercise as part of the Bishop’s Review of the Diocesan Pastoral Plan. See here for details.

The Diocesan Council of Laity meets regularly to discuss issues of importance regarding pastoral planning which affect the whole diocese. We are represented on the Council by Jim O’Sullivan.
