Conceived by Fr Joseph in 2015, the group was placed under the leadership of Patrick Crotty to advise on the renovation of Our Lady of Grace church and the expansion of St Wulstan’s church buildings.
Following an initial flurry of several months of work, identifying both essential and discretionary improvement opportunities, preparing presentations to parishioners of architectural options for St Wulstan’s and liaising with the diocese property departments regarding essential renovations at Our Lady of Grace, progress has slowed significantly while the “Future High Wycombe Consultation” process considers longer-term plans for all the Catholic church properties in High Wycombe. Depending on the outcome of the process, the group may yet again find itself very busy.
