Two weeks to go before our parish assemblies! Please join us for one of our assemblies in the parish hall after the Sunday Masses on September 13 and 14. Each assembly will take about an hour, but your participation is vital for the parish pastoral council to craft a pastoral plan for Holy Rosary Parish that meets your needs. The pastoral plan will consist of a mission statement, several three-to-five year goals, and a handful of one-year objectives that help us reach our goals.
The inserts that the parish has placed in recent bulletins including the seven essential elements of parish life (July 27), the parish’s history (August 10), the parish’s statistics and six questions (August 17), the demographics for Holy Rosary Parish’s territory (August 24), and other information (today) are meant to help you answer the six questions at the assemblies. If you missed one of these inserts, please go to the “Bulletins” page of the parish website and click on the applicable bulletin to read the missed insert.
The six questions the pastoral council wishes you to reflect on are:
1.What makes Holy Rosary Parish unique and special?
2.What do I as a member expect of my parish?
3.If Jesus were here today, what words would he give us to direct our future?
4. What do our demographics and data suggest we do for the future?
5.How should we reach out to the broader community from our parish?
6.Which of the seven elements do we need to focus on and why? —Brother Ian
