Disciples in Mission
Disciples In Mission: St. Mary’s Pastoral Writing Team Continues to Discern Our Parish’s Vision
The Team is continuing its steps into creating a vision statement for the parish. The Team recognizes that a vision statement is essential in providing a description for our parish of what “success” will look like in three years. It needs to be concise, inspirational, and attainable.
With this effort in mind, the Team is trying to pin point the focus areas on which to develop the themes for the vision. “If someone came to visit our parish three years from now, what would they physically experience on a Sunday, or on any other given day of the week?” This is the key question that helps refine their insights. The pivotal areas that we are working on are small groups, parish events, evangelization, hospitality, and charitable works.
The Team also recognizes that there is a “widespread hunger for deeper purpose and meaning, especially among the many ‘spiritual but not religious’”. This is one of the issues that resonates with the Team and, through the Archdiocese’s Disciples in Mission, is trying to address for our parish.
Please continue to pray for their success. If you have any suggestions, comments or concerns, please feel free to email at [email protected]
How does Disciples in Mission help parishes live out the New Evangelization?
The Archdiocesan pastoral plan Disciples in Mission seeks to spark the New Evangelization in our time and place by helping parishes to work more efficiently administratively and financially, be guided by a local pastoral plan, create a culture of vocations, and educate the lay faithful in evangelization and lay leadership. Disciples in Mission can help us make the most of the gifts God has given to us.
What does Disciples in Mission mean for My Parish?
Disciples in Mission presents the opportunity for our parish to enter into a new stage of their history. As a collaborative under Disciples in Mission, the parish community will be focused on forming disciples and evangelizing, i.e., bringing people back to a relationship with Jesus. Part of bringing the parish to this new focus is writing a local pastoral plan for evangelization. In preparation for writing the plan and implementing it, all are invited to attend and engage in Archdiocesan workshops in Evangelization and Leadership.
