  5. 2010 Implementation Plan – con’t

  6. Great question…this is the most exciting time of everything we have been doing as a parish family. This is the time when all the analysis, information gathering, prayer and planning goes from paper to flesh and spirit. As St. Paul reminds us, “there are many gifts…and all members are needed…for the one body.” This is the time when your flesh and spirit are needed. In the upcoming months, you may be contacted for to help with one of the initiatives by a member of the Pastoral Council. You may see an announcement in the bulletin. You may hear of opportunities when your gifts, skills, knowledge, and experience can made a significant contribution to the life of the parish. The following pages outline the scope and requirements needed for the implementation of each goal and objective for 2010. So, see where you may help. Some initiatives require the organization of new groups and ministries. Others are more temporary as ad hoc committees. Still others are a mixture of both. Your parish needs YOU to be RENEWED! So, what’s next you ask?

  9. What’s Needed?... Scope and Requirements of Goals and Objectives for 2010 Implementation STEWARDSHIP Goal: To execute a formal education and spiritual formation program based on the “Church Sharing” in order to initiate and entire parish culture of stewardship. Objective: Form Social Committee Scope Requirements Planning regular events of fellowship Social/event planning experience Design Social Plans for parish Organizational leadership with budget, leading, Identify parishioners for social pricing, etc. experience organizing, planning, engagement All ages/groups must be part of membership Reach out to all ages and groups Marketing/advertizing background Comments: Primarily, this goal was put under Stewardship because of the voiced and observed need to build up the sense of community among parishioners and to help people get to know each other better. Once parishioners feel more comfortable with each other socially, they are more apt to become involved in ministries and organizations. In addition, this will help change people’s perceptions that you come to church for mass, school, and faith formation only. There is an obvious need for this based on the experience of the Pentecost presentation and picnic and the response/attendance at the Harvest Days events. It was voiced that the response to St. Clare of Assisi was astounding as far as stewardship goes. However, our generosity has been a long-time hallmark of our parish. Putting money in a basket is easy, but getting people to give of themselves is more challenging and requires more work. A social committee can help get people together to realize this and provides greater opportunity for education/spiritual formation.
