History of the Visioning Committee
Collaborating with Fr. Ray to Formulate Meaningful Vision and Direction for our Parish
In the fall of 2012, after considerable thought and prayer, Fr.Ray invited nearly two dozen parishioners representing different sectors of our congregation to be a part of a ‘Visioning Group’ for our parish. Sub-groups of the Visioning Group, under Fr. Ray’s direction and in collaboration with our entire faith community (YOU!), will help direct the future of our parish by looking at where our parish has been, where we are now, and where we are going.

Where have we been?
