Renew My Church


Parish Conversation to Discuss Our Future

As Jesus Christ calls us to constantly renew His Church, we must be prepared to lend our voice and efforts to the possible ways in which we bring about that needed renewal. The following overview and scenarios are a starting point for discussion of possibilities.  Please share your feedback or concerns within the next week to give us time to review it to include in the larger conversation.

A Process of Discernment
Representatives from our four parishes (Our Lady of Victory, St. Constance, St. Pascal and us) met last Tuesday to begin the discussion on our future. We focused on our collective strengths and challenges to fulfill the mission of the Church in our community. Following our Town Hall, we will be putting out a survey (the first of several) to get additional feedback from the parish to take back to the larger group. We will be meeting throughout the rest of the summer and fall to provide feedback to the Cardinal with our first-hand reflections on the Church in our community and possibilities for the future. All the information will be available on our the website, as well as in summary form in future bulletins. We do need everyone’s participation and feedback to provide the most accurate and inclusive discernment.

God’s Blessings,

Fr. Neil
