Click here for news about the St. John Fisher/St. Veronica Collaborative Pastoral Region
Collaborative Pastoral Region
Down the road we could look at how our parishes might work together by sharing of some staff and programs, but these are not steps that we would look at initially.
We emphasized that we would need additional clergy assistance, as we are not in a position to reduce Sunday Masses.
On January 11, at St. Veronica, Bishop Binzer and Fr. Schmidt will meet with:
1. Pastors of both parishes, then
2. Parish Council and/or Finance Council
3. Parish staff of both parishes.
All of these groups will have dinner together between our meetings.
A Town Hall Meeting will be held on Thursday, January 19. ALL PARISHIONERS are invited to hear the plans about the Collaborative Pastoral Region. This meeting will take place at St. John Fisher at 7:00 p.m.
Part of this process will involve a transition/implementation Committee to form a plan to be presented to Bishop Binzer.
Further, more detailed information can be found by going to www.catholiccincinnati.org, then “Ministries and Office,” then “Pastoral Regions.”
Please pray for the smooth transition of implementing the region for our two parishes. It’s also important to note that this process is going on throughout the archdiocese. Our parishes are not being “singled out,” but joining in the process of our whole archdiocese.
Ecumenical Prayer Service Celebrates
Annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
Multiple congregations representing a diversity of Christian denominations in Greater Anderson Township will come together for an Ecumenical Celebration of the Word of God on Sunday, January 22 2017. The service, which will be held as part of the area’s observance of the Annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, will take place at Lutheran Church of the Resurrection beginning at 4:00 pm.
Dr. Gordon Huffman, retired JHF Kuder Professor of Christian Mission at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio, will deliver the message. The Shelby Walker Male Chorus from Allen Temple AME Church will provide special music for the worship celebration.
Begun in 1908, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is celebrated each year throughout the world January 18-22.
This Worship Service is offered to the community by the Lutheran Church of the Resurrection as part of its commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation and in thanksgiving for efforts of Lutheran and Roman Catholic congregations around the world making conscious and concerted efforts to heal past conflicts to move toward communion in the present and future. The public is cordially invited.
