Day of Connection for Parish Ministry Leaders

As we prepare for the next year of our Parish Planning, I am happy to announce a Day of Connections for Church Ministry Leaders on Saturday, September 23. The Parish Pastoral Council is host of this event and seven Ministry Leaders have been busy in the planning. This is an opportunity to thank our Coordinators for their generosity as a Church Ministry Leaders. The dedication of time and effort is a blessing for our Parish. For the last two years, through our Ministry Leaders, we have set goals for Prayer, Study, Ministry, and Fellowship (Welcoming, Worshiping, and Witnessing). This year we will continue to build on this foundation.

This Day of Connection will be the kick-off to our Parish goal to CONNECT more deeply and publicly our very active Ministry to a Prayer Life. Two years ago, we began Parish Planning. Last year many of our Volunteers viewed the power point presentation depicting and explaining the Charisms of our Patron, Saint Francis of Assisi. Inspired by His Call to “Build My Church”, each of us involved our Volunteers in a project to identify and reflect these special Charisms in a Parish LOGO and Ministry MOTTOS. 

Learning of the Charisms of our Patron and CONNECTING these to our Parish LOGO and to your Ministry MOTTOS are the beginning steps. The next step is together to CONNECT these more deeply to our own prayer and ministry and more publicly transmit these to all our Volunteers. This is the central focus of this year’s Parish Plan.

The details of the day, Saturday September 23, are the gathering at 8:15am and continuing through to and including 4:00pm Vigil Mass. Our 35 Ministry Leaders will attend the 4 o’clock Mass. The Facilitator for the day is Dr. Mary Carter-Waren, Associate Professor, School of Ministry, St. Thomas University, Miami, Florida

With prayer, vision, dedicated work, and creativity, please join me your Pastor, so together we can CONNECT more deeply and publicly our very active Ministry to our Prayer Life.

Sincerely in the Lord,
