Dear Parishioner of St. Mark’s Church. I and some staff from the diocese will be on a pastoral visitation to your parish on May 17, 2016. These visitations are an opportunity to better know the parishes in the Diocese and to support the ministries that the church provides for and with you. I hope I will have the opportunity to greet many of you personally with the various activities scheduled for the day. Please come and say hello, if you are able, at the morning Mass.
In case we do not have the opportunity to personally visit that day I invite our thoughts on the following questions with will explore with the parish staff during my visit.
Which ministries or services at St. Mark’s have you found especially helpful in supporting you, your family, neighbors and community?
How might St. Mark’s best continue or strengthen its ministry of its parishioners and the community?
What areas might the church leadership explore to be an even fuller witness of God’s love and healing among you?
After prayful consideration, if you have thoughts on these questions I would appreciate receiving them by email to Fr. Michael Wood, my priest sectary, His email address is email@example.com.
God bless you and thank you for your role in the pastoral visitation of St. Mark’s
