Volunteers needed for St. Augustine’s renovations

st-augustineSoon workers will start the works on the interior of the St. Augustine church. Fr. Ton Huitink has therefore asked for volunteers to help in the preparations.

All the benches have to be removed and stored. This will be done by professionals. But extra hands are needed. There is a lot to clean up, remove etc. There were already some that immediately have shown their willingnes to give a helping hand, for that we thank them!

The project is lead by Michel Dankers. He is coordinating the whole operation. If you want to help as well, please contact Fr. Ton Huitink:
pastoorutrecht@gmail.com or info@salvatorparochie.nl

Thanks in advance for your interest!

These documents are the basis for further dicussions:

• Letter of the Pope: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3KO_z-N3YOiSGllVDVaNS1Ldkk

• Preparatory document: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3KO_z-N3YOidFh0dkNDdkxVMEE

If you are interested please read the documents. The preparatory document concludes with a series of questions. The consultation will also include young people through a website with questions on their expectations and their lives. The answers to both series of questions will be the basis for drafting the “work-document”, which will be the reference point in the discussion of the synod fathers. The pastoral team of the Utrecht parishes invites young people from the age 16-29 to discuss the meaning of the church and faith in their lives. The meeting will take place in September. The invitation will follow. You can express your interest in this meeting at secretariaat@stmartinusutrecht.nl or gj.westerveld@tiscali.nl
