As had been decided at the October meeting, this meeting’s focus was to be The Evangelisation Strategy and the formation of a Strategy Team.

*The Pastoral Council will be folded and replaced with an Evangelistion Strategy Team.

*There would still be a need for a separate Parish Council to deal with more social Parish matters.

*Parishioners will be told that there will be a restructuring of the Parish Council as a directive from the bishop.

*There is a possibility of inviting a guest speaker to come to Guernsey to explain to parishioners exactly what evangelisation is all about.

*It is proposed to have a Holy Hour in January as a starter for The Evangelisation Strategy Team which it is hoped will be in place by then.

*An invitation may be extended to Hannah at the start of 2016 to come to Guernsey to speak to the team.

Action Plan:
*To obtain guidelines from Hannah for the formation of The Evangelisation Strategy Team.
*These will be circulated to Pastoral Council members before the next meeting.
*Members are requested to reflect on possible candidates for The Evangelisation Strategy Team.
*It is proposed to hold the December meeting and have a meal at Les Rocquettes Hotel.
