Faith in our Future Update:
Bishop O'Connell has asked us to be part of the current cycle of parish planning relating to the "Faith in Our Future". His expectation is that each parish of the Diocese of Trenton will find neighboring parishes with whom to plan in order to:
1. Share more resources with each other and with parishes in need;
2. Avoid unneeded duplication of services; and
3. Fill in the gaps where service and ministry have not been available.
The parishes with whom we work include: Holy Innocents, Neptune and Mother of Mercy, Asbury Park.
The first round of recommendations by the Diocesan Pastoral Planning Committee has commended our parish for choosing the Collarborative Model among our three parishes. Check out our Diocesan Website for up to the minute updates on the status of "Faith in our Future."
JUNE 2017 UPDATE:
The Diocesan Implementation Committee has received the recommendations of our Cohort Implementation teams in terms of goals and objectives for effective Collaboration over the next year. Their deliberations will be announced in early July 2017.
