1.Acceptance of minutes circulated after the January 2024 meeting

N.B. the question is how to guide the parish into doing this, we are not being asked to do it for them, nor are we being asked to do it now.

4.Discussion on how we can help the parish respond to the Pope and the bishops’ request to us to prayerfully reflect on the four constitutions of Vatican 2 (part of building truth) using the resources provided here.

N.B. as above, the question is how to guide the parish into doing this, we are not being asked to do it for them, nor are we being asked to do it now.

5.Short exchange of ideas on how we can improve two aspects of music in the parish (part of building beauty). (1) We have one of the finest organs in the diocese, but it is rarely heard played to anywhere near its capabilities. What can we do about this? (2) We also have arguably the most beautiful church in the diocese, and it would be a great setting for recitals of sacred music. How can we do something towards this?

6.Update on (1) WAYmakers, and (2) sanctuary reordering. See appended documents.

7.AOB item notified Newsletter: This is still not successful, and it has been suggested that a group take control of making it work. Volunteers’ names and suggested nominations of others needed to form the group. Similar appeal to be made to the wider parish.
