Safeguarding the vulnerable, Deanery model clauses, Constitution and Property Trust Deed

Many stakeholders of our Deanery would like us to be as professional as possible when running our parishes, bearing in mind that we are mostly volunteers. The Archdiocese requires us to meet certain norms, parents, carers and families want us to safeguard our people, donors want us to safeguard the funds and property that they give us. To help communities and parishes with these complex tasks, the deanery has developed a set of up-to-date constitutional material to make sure that we are using all the latest tools available to us.

Reflections on the funeral of Archpriest John Lee

Held 1st of July 2014

Father John’s funeral was magnificent, befitting the man. As the large congregation gathered to venerate his body while the clergy read the Gospel, we were given time to reflect on just how important was the occasion; and how large a part Father John had played in so many lives. There was an air of expectation, which was fulfilled when Shanta and family, with the women resplendent in white saris, processed with great dignity into the church.
