Information on Pastoral Planning Process

Parish’s Pastoral Planning Process
As you recall, Bishop McKnight asked each parish to form groups during Lent to discuss parish needs and to submit thoughts on parish and diocesan planning. Evidently, the “group” part of the process was compromised, but the Bishop hopes we are still going through the process. The diocese has asked for numbers, so we need to know how many people have completed or are going through this process.
Please send a note to Greg Stratman at stpatsAFF@outlook.com to let him know if you or a group has completed this process and have submitted the details to Fr. Greg or if you remain involved in the process.
