Request for feedback
We are gathering feedback that will help form vision and mission priorities in our parish. Please take time to complete a Divine Renovation Book Discussion Feedback Form, and return it to the Parish Office. The Divine Renovation Team will collate the feedback and discuss what steps we can take as a parish community to begin to allow the ideas to grow into a plan and process for the parish. These outcomes will be shared with the parish community in the coming months.
