This is a Diocesan initiative started over three years ago by the Bishop. Locally we have not followed it as we have concentrated on the setting up of the parish of Saint Oscar Romero. However Fr Shaun has asked if anyone would like to represent a particular church and form a steering group for the parish as a whole they should let him know. The scheme allows parishes to celebrate what they do. It also enables good practice to be shared between parishes and throughout the diocese. We are already doing what is expected but a more formal participation would bring us in line with the rest of the diocese under the careful and pastoral eye of the bishop. More details about Hope in the Future can be found on the web site for the diocese.
