RENEWAL PLAN UPDATE
The implementation of the Archdiocesan Renewal Plan, “A Promise of New Life…Courage to Renew” has begun. We have hired a full-time Coordinator, Mr. Peter Whittle and a new Implementation Committee, with Monsignor Francis Puddister as Chair and Dr. Rick Singleton as Co-chair, in moving the challenging process forward. Discussions in the first Zone – St. John’s East (St. Pius X, Mary Queen of Peace, St. Paul’s and St. Francis of Assisi) are going very well. We will begin work with the Mount Pearl – Gould’s- Petty Harbour and CBS zones in January. Your support of this process will ensure the renewal of pastoral life in our Archdiocese. We pray for the courage and guidance of the Holy Spirit and thank all of those involved in the planning and implementation process for their dedication. For more information and further updates go to www.rcsj.org.
To avoid confusion to those who attend weekday Mass, we have decided that if the schools are closed we will cancel the 9:30 AM Mass. For the 7:00 PM Mass on Tuesday and weekend Masses, the decision concerning Mass will be forwarded to the radio station and our parish answering service and website will be updated.
We have recently begun a Facebook page for our parish family to “like” and keep updated on everything that is happening within our parish! We post important information, such as events that are being held, along with beautiful quotes and prayers. Please “like” us and feel free to share the page with your friends!
The Committee has completed its review of the comprehensive feedback received from the recent 17 Parishioner’s Consultation meeting held within the Archdiocese. The verbatim feedback is organized as it relates to the same six question asked at each meeting and therefore allows for better understanding for the overall responses to the six questions raised across the nine Pastoral Areas. This Parishioner’s feedback report will be available on the Archdiocese Website at www.rcsj.org during the week of March 27, 2017. Please visit this website to become updated on the results.
