Faith in Our Future GraphicFaith in Our Future, the Diocese-wide pastoral planning initiative, is a collaborative effort aimed at creating a long term, sustainable parish model that better aligns with today's Catholic Church.

With our cohort partners, St. William the Abbot and St. Veronica's, we are beginning to explore what this collaboration will look like going forward, beginning with The Poster in our Narthex.
