Strategic Planning Kickoff Retreat Jan 27, 2024

We are inviting our key parish leaders to attend a kick off event for the strategic planning process.  This kickoff event will be part retreat and part workshop.  Together, we will break open and more deeply understand Father Jerry’s goals and discern how each ministry and program within our parish is being called to align to our mission and help achieve those goals.  Kristin Bird from Burning Hearts Discipels will facilitate this opportunity for us to dream together about our dreams for MBS Parish and how those dreams intersect with who God is calling us to be.  

If you would like to talk to someone about planning for evangelization & discipleship, hosting a parish mission or school retreat, or forming a team of missionary disciples, please don't hesitate to contact us
