Diocesan Visioning Process – You Are Invited to Share and Be Heard  Bishop Johnston recently instituted a “visioning” process to develop a Mutually Shared Vision for our diocese.  The purpose of the process is to create a compelling Vision statement (unifying theme) for the diocese.  It will include three priorities – major areas of focus – for the diocese for the next 3 years and six goals (two within each priority) that will lead to specific outcomes in the next 2-3 years.

Bishop Johnston described the process as a way to “honestly assess our needs as a diocese and align them to the larger call of living as households of faith united in one Church as disciples of Jesus Christ.”  Bishop Johnston invites every member of our local church to participate in their regional listening session in July.  The locations have been chosen to reach as much of the diocese as  possible in the time frame available.  You may attend any one of the sessions.

Throughout the process Bishop Johnston asks everyone to join him in prayer for the fruitfulness of this effort.  Prayer cards have been made available for this effort and distributed to parishes in late June.  More information about the process, online forms to submit input, and news updates on progress may be found at www.kcsjcatholic.org
