Pastoral Planning

After a lenthy period of prayer, discussion and reflection, our bishop is ready to release a Pastoral Plan for the parishes of our Diocese. This plan will help guide the direction of St. Jospeh Church over the next few years.

“I am pleased that on this feast of Pentecost 2023, we are inaugurating our Diocesan Pastoral Plan which charts a course for our activity and ministry in the next five years. Titled “Transforming our Lives; Building our Church,” it is the fruit of prayerful discussion and discernment over the past two years, in parish, regional and diocesan meetings. In our listening to the Holy Spirit through those discussions with each other, we have identified six pastoral goals and specific strategies to help achieve them at the diocesan and parish levels.”
