Parish Development launch Church 21 website

Most Revd Dr Robin Eames officially launched the Parish Development website www.church21.info on Monday 21st November. The website is a resource for parishes taking part in the new Church 21 initiative.

Archbishop Eames said that ?Church 21 offers a new dimension to the life of a parish?. Revd Paul Hoey, chairperson of the group, thanked the Archbishop and said that ?we hope this website will be a resource to any parish looking to discover new ways of doing ministry today?.

As part of the programme, selected pilot parishes will take part in a Lenten audit of needs and resources in their churches. Their assessments will culminate in a seminar on 15-17 September 2006, in St Patrick?s College in Dublin.
