Strategy proposal submitted to Bishop

Bishop Peter

After a long and prayerful exercise of research and deliberation, the Blessed John Henry Newman Strategy Group were pleased to submit their proposals to Bishop Peter concerning the future of the Parish.

The Bishop had tasked the Group with proposing, by the end of the 2011, how best to shape the Parish under one priest from Sept 2012 and build a ‘Thriving Catholic Community’.

Bishop Peter will return to High Wycombe on the 25th January for a public announcement of his decision regarding these proposals in an open forum at St Wulstan’s Church.

May Beatie rest in peace. Amen.
