Pastoral Planning: Summer/Fall 2014 Part 8

What expectations should we have about the October 2014 Announcements? Pastoral Planning is ongoing, life-long, and life-giving. The goal of Bishop Cunningham’s announcements will be to assure all parishioners that we are mindful that they have access to dynamic, vital faith communities that are structured in a manner that will serve all of the people of our counties. he hopes that each parishioner will come to understand and to take a role within the life of the parish as the diocesan family responds to its changing needs and shifting pattern of human and other resources. When one considers all of the people of the diocese, we recall, that together, we are the local Church known by our Gospel based care for one another and the ways that we reach out to others in Christ. As our diocesan mission statement invites: “The Faith: know it, live it, share it.”
