Families of Parishes – First Family Gatherings

You are invited to meet your new family!

Beginning this Spring, you and your parish are invited to attend a series of Family Gatherings, an opportunity to learn more about our transition to Families of Parishes.

Each one of us is called to go and make disciples, to share the Good News. That’s what’s behind our move to Families of Parishes. We want each one of our Families to be places where people can encounter Jesus anew, grow in faith as disciples, and be equipped to be his witnesses.

There must be no bystanders in our mission! We also hope you will encourage your fellow parishioners to sign up. We hope to see you this this Spring and Summer as we learn, pray, and recommit ourselves to becoming joyful missionary disciples.
