The Inclusivity Sub-group is part of the Parish Pastoral Council. The aim is to look at ways in which we can make our churches as welcoming and inclusive as possible.
Prior to lockdown, we were looking into accessibility issues for parishioners with mobility difficulties and those with dementia. As a result, some adaptations have been implemented at both churches eg. new signage, ramps, accessibility from St Theresa’s car park.
All members of the group and the Pastoral Council have attended a ”Dementia Awareness Training” session. We had also been investigating how other churches are working towards being “dementia-friendly”.
The group will hopefully resume meetings in September would always welcome new members.
Meetings take place about every 8 weeks. To join the group, contact: Ann McCarthy:
