Archdiocese of Detroit moves into second phase of "Together in Faith"

This is not exactly the kind of news we want to be reading, but need to be aware of.  It's probably a good time remind people that if they are spending considerable time at an urban parish, such as Grotto, to become a registered parishioner.  I found Assumption Grotto in May of 2005.  I asked Fr. Perrone if I could join about two weeks later.  He suggested that I wait some months to be sure that I was going to stay.  In early June of 2005 I told him that the only way I was not going to register so soon is if he told me I could not.  The rest is history.

Detroit — The second phase of the ongoing Detroit archdiocesan pastoral planning process, Together in Faith, has been endorsed by the Archdiocesan Presbyteral Council and will commence this month.

The process was started in 2001 as a way for parishes to best allocate their resources for ministry in the context of their communities and in relation to their neighboring parishes. It has been an ongoing process since its inception and over the past decade has played a key role in the relationships between local parishes.

Priests of the archdiocesan Presbyteral Council — a consultative body to Archbishop Allen Vigneron — received an overview of goals, objectives and timelines of the next steps of Together in Faith at a Jan. 10 meeting.

The next phase will call for pastors in the archdiocese to identify four to five lay leaders to represent their parish in regional planning groups that will meet over the course of the coming year.
