Partnership Joint Event. In 2016 Bishop Alan set up the ‘Stewards of the Gospel’ with eighty or more people representing their parishes at diocesan level. A Vision Document was produced and one of the outcomes of this document was the formation of about thirty parish partnerships throughout the Diocese. As a result of this, La Salette has been linked with two local parishes, namely St Peter’s, Dagenham and St Albans, Elm Park. We meet on a regular basis and are discussing ways forward for our individual parishes to work more closely together. At the end of this month an agreement between the parishes, already discussed in the Stewards of the Gospel meetings, will be signed by the Parish Priests. We have arranged a combined Parishes get-together at La Salette Church, carol singing on Friday 13th December from 7.00pm. to acknowledge and to celebrate our commitment to this partnership .There will be Cheese & biscuits will be served afterwards in the Club with the bar available.
