Bedford Pastoral Area Council

A group of committed lay representatives from each parish, clergy and religious meeting regularly in support of the mission of the Catholic community in Bedford and Kempston.

The Pastoral Area Council facilitates initiative that help members of the Catholic community grow in their faith. It also encourages communication across the Catholic parishes and the wider Christian community. A recent initiative has been the formation of the Proclaim Evangelisation Group, which has successfully coordinated several initiatives to promote and share the joy of the Catholic Faith.
