A significant new era dawned for the Waterside and Strathfoyle parishes on the
16th of October last with the establishment of our new Parish Pastoral Council.
The impetus for the formation of the new structure came at a well-
inaugural meeting of parishioners in the parish hall, augmented and complimented
by the attendance of Frs. Johnny Doherty and Oliver Crilly, both hugely
experienced in parish pastoral activities. In the course of the evening, six
parishioners were elected to the new PPC; Danny Boyle, Shaun Doherty,
John Herron, John Mc Carron, Eamon Boast and Lawrence Moore. Provision
was Made for the co-
Sr. Breda, Karen Tyrell, Noreen Sweeney and Brian Mc Gowan
subsequently brought the council to its required strength.
