WHERE WE ARE GOING
Listen. Learn. Discern. We have listened to parishioners. Thank you very much for everyone who has participated in this important process of discussing the future of our four North Glengarry Parishes. We had 20 different Town Hall Meetings in the past two months, and people shared their faith in-person, via online survey, and print form. Our Parish Renewal Committee continues to learn from the comments gathered and we are now preparing for the third phase – discernment. Please pray for our upcoming Parish meetings: Tuesday, November 22: Parish Renewal Committee. Wednesday, November 23, Parish Finance Council. Wednesday, November 30, Parish Pastoral Council.
