Please plan to attend a Town Hall meeting.  Your input is vital to help our Parish create an inspired and bold new strategic plan to take us into the future.  

ë Sunday, October 22 after the 8:00 am Mass at about 9:15 am or

ë Sunday, October 22 after the 11:00 am Mass at about 12:15 pm. 

ë Tuesday, October 24th after the 6:00 pm Mass at approximately 6:45 pm.

The format will include a general information session about the processes of strategic planning and then attendees providing feedback at the following stations, which we are calling pillars, around the gym:

 

Pillars Pillar Leaders

Worship Deacon Bob Mahaffey and Lauri Mitro

Faith Formation Norma Stokes

Christian Outreach Kathy Dunleavy

Parish Life Jack Klein

Communication Michaeleen Davis and Matias Mariani

Facilities Mark Barry and Eric Rice

School Tara Frech

 

At the stations, we will be seeking input on strengths for that area so that we can build on our strengths and we will be asking for input and ideas to grow in these areas.  The information will be compiled through November and Pillar committees will work on goals and priorities starting in January.  There will be sign-up sheets for each pillar committee at the town hall meetings. We look forward to seeing you there.

We want to thank everyone for having participated in the September 13th prayer service.  We are pleased to announce that on Friday, October 13th, from 5:30 pm to 6:00 pm in the Historic Church, we are going to have one more opportunity to pray together before the statue of Our Lady of Fatima, which will be exposed for public veneration on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of her last apparition to Fatima to the three shepherd children, Saint Jacinta and Saint Francisco Marto and Servant of God Lucia dos Santos.  One must go to confession and receive Eucharistic Communion within 20 days before or after the indulgence is sought, which is October 13th.  We encourage families to come with their children.  All are welcome.
