PASTORAL PLANNING TASK FORCE

The Charlotte/Greece/Hilton Pastoral Planning Task Force met again on June 21, 2022. The task force spent time in prayer and faith sharing prior to beginning its meeting. The bulk of the meeting was devoted to discussing parish data compiled by task force members: e.g., on each parish’s buildings and rounds, staffing,ministries,councils/committees, faith formation, ministry at hospitals and senior care facilities, fundraising, and new initiatives. We are actively working over the summer on objectives for this coming year. These will be finalized on October 4 when we will also determine how best to have open, honest, and transparent two-way communication with parishioners. The intent is to work through challenges facing our parishes collaboratively and as the Catholic Church of Charlotte, Greece, and Hilton.
