Pastoral Planning Process 2014-2017:

The Vatican II documents call us to an ‘adult faith’ and also for a ‘collegiality’ of laity and clergy in building up the church in
service of its mission in the world.  We have the current leadership example of Pope Francis – service, church as mission. Since
the previous parish plan was written, we have a new pastor, Father Ryszard Kolodziej and a beautiful new church building.

Father Ryszard has endorsed a suggestion that we renew the Pastoral Plan and build on St. Brendan Church strengths and learn
how we can address perceived weaknesses and to take advantage of opportunities to assist parishioners on their journeys in
faith.  A Pastoral Planning Work Group was created by Father Ryszard in January 2014; this group will report regularly to the
Parish Council as the parish plan develops.
