SURVEY UPDATE - March 27, 2016

The goals of the Faith in Our Future process promoted by Bishop O’Connell include:

1.Strengthen and enliven the parishes of the Diocese as well as Diocesan-sponsored organizations and ministries.

2.Explore new models of leadership in parishes and ministries in institutional settings (schools, colleges, hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, etc.) in order to address the challenges presented by the anticipated retirement of a large number of clergy and religious over the next ten years.

3.Improve our stewardship of personnel, finances, and facilities and other parish and Diocesan resources.

4.Establish collaborative relationships among the parishes and ministries of the diocese that will build upon the gospel to re/evangelize the local church, especially those who live on the fringes of the church, as well as those who do not yet know Christ.

5.Provide for pastoral ministry to Hispanic Catholics, the fastest growing segment of our Diocesan population, within our parishes and organizations.

For more information, please visit the parish website, or e-mail the Core Team at faithinourfuture@sienachurch.org

 
SURVEY UPDATE - March 19, 2016
 
Bishop O’Connell has asked us to be part of the current cycle of parish planning related to the Faith in Our Future initiative.  His expectation is that each parish will find neighboring parishes with whom to plan in order to:
  1. Share more resources with each other and with parishes in need;
  2. Avoid unneeded duplication of services; and
  3. Fill in the gaps where service and ministry have not been available.

The parishes we will be working with are St. William the Abbott (Howell) and St. Veronica’s (Howell).

For more information, email the Core Team at faithinourfuture@sienachurch.org
