A parish-wide retreat was held in the Woodlands Room on the morning of December 10th. Parishoners gathered for prayer and small group discussions to discern ways to encourage all to Pray, Grow, Serve: Orar, Crecer, Servir. The retreat was facilitated by Dr. Robert McCarty, the previous executive director of the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry. The Pastoral Plan was formally introduced during all Masses on the weekend of December 10-11, 2017.
During the season of Lent the pastoral plan continues to be shared on Tuesday evenings after the 7:00pm Lenten Prayer in the Historic Chapel. Each Tuesday features a talk on one of the five areas of focus of the pastoral plan: Intercultural, Sacraments, Growing Disciples, Service, Stewardship.
