Kick off for Parish Vision, Mission and Values statement

Wisdom from Above and Below
This weekend I am very excited to unveil our new Mission and Vision Statements along with the beginnings of our pastoral plan for the coming years. Members of the parish staff / ministry team, Stewardship Council, Finance Committee and many others have helped to synthesize and organize these efforts. We have considered directives from the Magisterium (Pope and Bishops) as well as the insight and desires of those of us at Saint John the Baptist Parish.
As the pastoral plan develops we will be relieved and gratified to see how much of our intention to Build Up the Kingdom of Godis already being accomplished and being enhanced. There is lots of talent and good faith in our community that will only improve as we proceed with God's work. We will be constantly inspired and enlightened as we discover and rediscover how rich and established our Catholic Tradition really is.
As you have probably noticed already, most of our initial efforts have focused on enhancing our high school formation and encouraging adults to participate in the same program. So far, these efforts appear to be going well. We are also developing a communication strategy for implementing and managing the changes as smoothly as possible. Our new website and some changes in our bulletin will make things clear and accessible.
