Pastoral Plan 2014 - 2019
In undertaking the goals for the 2014‐2019 Pastoral Plan, the decision was made to use the Parish Values of Gospel, Eucharist, Hospitality and tewardship as a foundation. The Pastoral Council diligently studied the values and created a graphic to illustrate their findings of the key aspects of those values.
The Pastoral Council provided a vision and several draft goals for the plan and invited parish ministry leaders to a Leadership Roundtable to provide input. The discussion with parish leaders and pastoral staff members also revealed four areas 5 years:
- Youth – Young Adults – Young Families: Invest in the future of our church through formation, liturgy, outreach and fellowship opportunities.
- Liturgy: Renew weekend liturgies to ensure parishioner engagement and understanding that all are "sent forth" after Mass to be Christ in the world.
- Outreach: Support community outreach efforts through our work with the Interfaith Council and other community organizations.
- Parish Campus: Continue efforts to be good stewards of the parish facilities and property provided to us to meet our parish mission.
It is our intent that the goals and direction of the plan are visionary, challenging, practical, inclusive and action oriented. The plan encompasses ccountability, adherence to parish policies and procedures, and serves the parish on an annual, as well as, a long‐range basis.
