AMPJP Executive Officer’s report on May 2021

28 May 2021 by

The month of May was busy with both a AMPJP Council Strategic Issues Forum and Council meeting 16-17 May 2021 and a CORMSAA meeting 18 May 2021. A highlight of both was that they were face-to-face meetings where those present could speak to individuals and small groups as well to the whole assembly. Everyone was also pleased that two representatives of Mercy Ministry Companions were able to join us for the first time. As is the way both meetings involve the writing of several meeting papers and there is always substantial follow-up.

One of the major outcomes for the AMPJP Council meeting was the finalisation of the AMPJP Formation Framework for Canonical Stewards. I look forward to working with the Formation Committee and our Members that will develop activities in response to this Framework.
