Our Diocese of Down and Connor is undertaking a major programme of change called Pathways to the Future.   It will look at the priorities and structures of the Church to see how we can best serve our 86 parishes and other ministries over the next twenty years.


A steering team of lay people and clergy has been preparing for this work in recent months and representatives of every parish have taken part in initial conversations.  In the coming months we all have a chance to find out more.  One important task is to collect accurate information and for that reason a census of Mass attendance across the diocese will be taken up next week Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st May.
