Today I’m happy to present the results of the Parish Examen, part of our planning process that reflected on and consolidated the input you, the parishioners, had previously provided. Please take a few moments to read this important document that will guide our parish for the next few years.

CLICK HERE to read our Calls and Commitments: page 1 is an explanatory introduction, with the Calls and Commitments themselves on page 2, followed by a helpful glossary of terms on page 3.

CLICK HERE for a graphic timeline of the entire planning process – especially helpful if you like to take in information visually.

The Calls and Commitments will guide our planning and priorities, especially as we enter into the “Family of Parishes” with Gesu Parish. I urge you to give the Calls and Commitments a careful and prayerful reading this week.  On Sunday, March 27, Parish Council members will be available after mass to discuss the Parish Examen and answer your questions.

I also urge you not to miss out on the many parish Lenten options that are presented in this newsletter to support your spiritual growth!  Finally, let us keep the crisis in Ukraine in our prayers – see the prayer of Pope Francis HERE – and consider a contribution to help the refugees through our Jesuit network and the Jesuit Refugee Service (a donation portal is available on our website HERE).
