Building Hope- Diocesan Task Force
Archbishop Farrell has established a Task Force called “Building Hope” and has launched a process of review and renewal for parishes in the Archdiocese.
This is taking place in parishes through this Easter Season.
It is intended to involve, like the Synodal path earlier this year, parishioners as well as others who are interested, in conversations about how renewal may be initiated in the parishes .To this end, there is a preparation process which will culminate in a general parish meeting at the beginning of next month. Sharing your thoughts and experiences will be invaluable as the Archdiocese seeks to act now so as to give effective witness and service in the years ahead. There is also a special prayer .
You will be kept informed about “Building Hope “.

For all those suffering or afraid,
That you will be close to them and protect them.

For compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices.
We pray for the world; that in this moment of crisis, we may reach out in solidarity
To our brothers and sisters in need.
