Discerning Our Parish Calling

Our parish Leadership Community (consisting of the parish council, pastoral staff members and our pastor Fr. Paul) is committed to a regular discipline of reading the signs of the times in order to better understand our parish’s God-given calling. They accomplish this task by engaging in a three-year discernment cycle.

During the first year of the cycle, which began in February, 2017, the Leadership Community will begin reading the signs of the times in order to better understand our constantly changing historical and social circumstances. The starting place for this work is seeking to better understand the concerns and hopes of our parishioners for their families, our nation and the world. The Leadership Community will try to see the world through our parishioners’ eyes and then interpret what they learn through the lens of our Catholic faith.

The purpose of this webpage is to keep parishioners informed of every step in this discernment process and to give parishioners opportunities to give input to the Leadership Community throughout the entire process.
