Our Pastoral Plan is a product of many minds and hearts working together to envision the growth of our Parish community.
In August 2016, Bishop Larry had made his canonical visit to OLS, during which he blessed and launched our Pastoral Plan. Since then there have been different meeting to grasp and internalize the PP as a guide and road map,
We had a workshop for the Parish Council, Ministry Leaders, and other meetings. Now we have come to the point of disseminating this plan to the whole parish. So, this weekend of 2/11 - 12 there will be short presentation of our pastoral plan, which has five major fields of concentration.
Our Pastoral Plan is named as "Our Journey with Jesus". Our life is seen as a Journey and as members of OLS we are not alone. Our Journey is always accompanied by Jesus and our faith community. As we Journey, we have plans for stop over, things to carry, people to accompany,etc.
Our Journey has five elements, as Christians we are by the fact of our Baptism called to proclaim Christ (Evangelisation), to take care of people and facilities given to us (Stewardship). To do these two we need to deepen our faith (Faith Formation) and skills (leadership) and we begin it from me and my nuclear church, family (Marriage & Family Life)
