The Diocesan Forward Together in Hope process has identified a need at St Cuthbert’s to have an up-to-date register of worshippers here, and also an up-to-date audit of the skills you have to offer and the needs you may have. It has been twelve years since there was last a parish census and audit of this kind.We’re therefore distributing a simple registration form asking for details and needs of the members of your household on the front, and the skills and talents they can offer on the back.
We would ask all parishioners and regular worshippers to take one (or if necessary more) of these forms and return it to the parish office (or to the box provided at the back of church). This will help us make sure we’re all doing what we can to help our parish community in its mission of serving God and our neighbour.
If you know of parishioners who aren’t able to get to Mass, please do take a form for them too: they are part of our community, who have much to offer and whom we’re keen to help.
NB We already have a student registration system in place via www.durhamcatholic.org and the yellow slips available at the back of the church. So students do not need to use the parish registration form (but are welcome to do so if they wish).
