VISION STATEMENT EXAMPLE FOR DISSCUSSION:  We will be asking for your thoughts on our vision.  You can write your comments either on the survey link https://bit.ly/3z00CL0 or on cards we will provide in church.

PARISH VISION FOR THE FUTURE?:  As we approach our 75th Anniversary as a Parish, we are asking everyone to pray about how they see Holy Rosary’s future and its role in the community.  We would like you to consider a proposed Vision Statement for the Future - who we want to be and what does that future and our community, look like.  How will it be for you?  For your fellow parishioners and for visitors who walk through our doors?  Will we be that vision in our community?  What would God want us to be?
Once we determine our vision, then we must realistically look at where we are now collectively as a parish, how to get to that future, what do we continue to do, how do we grow individually in a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and what do we need to change to live that vision.  Please consider this important matter in your prayers.  Pray like Your Future Depends on It!
