From the Pastor's Desk

Next week we begin the second half of our strategic planning process. Much work was done in 2014 to get to this point. We have produced a very impressive document to guide our future. Many, many people labored to make this happen. I want to thank them for their efforts.
Now we are to begin the most difficult part: the implementation of all our nice dreams. The preliminary work has enabled us to articulate our desires and hopes. The next five years are dedicated to making the words on paper a reality. In other words, here comes the fun part.
It is said war is too important to be left to the generals. Our realization of the strategic plan is far too important to be left to the pastor, parish council and staff. This will require the efforts of every parishioner. The plan touches every aspect of the parish, and if we are to accomplish our goals it will necessitate the involvement of every single one of us.
Please be sure to attend our strategic plan kick-off gatherings after each mass next weekend. I guarantee you will leave informed and excited about our future. You will also know the Holy Spirit is working in and through us to bring about something far greater than we can ever hope or imagine.
