At last week’s Synod briefing the Vicar General Fr John Deeny echoed Bishop Mark’s pastoral message that A Precious Place continues to be “a key point of reference” for us.
Fr John spoke of A Precious Place as an ongoing journey, and explained that the synodal process dovetails with the Diocesan initiative, each feeding into the other – one local and the other universal.
Several in the audience appeared not to know of or had forgotten about PP, probably because the pandemic severely cut short or prevented activity. We perhaps need to re-energise A Precious Place locally, if we are to continue fruitfully down this path.
