SURVEY: MISSION DISCERNMENT - WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU!

The Mission Discernment Team would like to offer you the opportunity to take part in a survey about your experience of the Catholic Parish of New Plymouth and suggest what we could change and what we should keep. 

We need to hear every parishioner’s voice so that our Mission Plan reflects the hopes of our faith community for the future.  It will take you about 10 minutes to complete the survey.  It is open to all members of your household 16 years of age and older.

You can respond in one of the following ways:

A. Through this link:  SURVEY LINK: PLEASE CLICK HERE

B. By picking up a paper copy from the church foyer when you are next there, filling it out at home and returning it to the box in the foyer next week.

Thank you.

 The vision of a parish centre for the CPoNP

The new building will represent the vision and functioning of a missional parish for the 2020’s and beyond. It will have the capacity to give priests and parish staff; offices; meeting rooms for RCIA; Children’s Liturgy; St Vincent de Paul; Liturgy/Finance, Health & Safety Committees, and the multitude of groups that meet within the parish.  There will be a connection between St Joseph’s Church and the hall below.

The challenge we face with the St Joseph’s presbytery/parish office is that it has passed its economic life:  Built in 1958 it represents the vision and functioning needs of a parish from the 1950’s -  Father Simon Story
