The purpose of our Pastoral Plan, which is entitled “Embracing a Future Full of Hope,” is to identify several key priorities which will inspire us and focus the energies of the whole diocese for the next five years.

The Pastoral Plan is our response to the request of the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, who instructed each diocese to develop a pastoral plan, so that the Gospel would take root in the life of the Church as we begin the new millennium.

I think you will find that the Pastoral Plan affirms much that is already being done in your parish. As we look ahead to the next five years, the six goal statements of the Pastoral Plan establish a clear focus for our parishes. By committing ourselves to these goals, we declare that we will be accountable to one another in doing what we set out to do.
