PPC Launches for 2023

The PPC had a wonderful Retreat last weekend, where we gathered to reflect on our journey and develop goals for our parish in 2023.

5pm Sunday Night Mass - Details on our time change

Thank you to all parishioners who participated in the Mission Leadership Team’s survey around the idea of moving one of our Parish Mass times to 5pm. It was proposed that an earlier Mass time may suit families, particularly with younger children and enable community gatherings after mass for Parish groups and Parish events. On the survey, it was stated that if the majority of the congregation are positive towards a change of Mass time we will trial for 3 months and then reassess.

In the time since launching the survey, the MLT have received an overwhelmingly positive response from the Parish community, with many comments and insights on the idea. While the idea of having a Mass at 5pm was popular overall, there was a split as to whether or not we changed Saturday or Sunday. The MLT has taken the time to discern which option to move forward with and have agreed to a 5pm Mass on Sunday evenings. A lot of the positive feedback was around accessibility for young people and young families, with an earlier time on Sunday nights opening more doorways for young people to participate in both the Mass and any gatherings afterward, including meetings held by the Antioch community. As we are a Salesian Parish, it seemed that the right course of action was to choose the Mass that accommodated young people better.
