Synod Small Group Sessions @ St. Stan's - Church Hall
Oct 17 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

As part of the ongoing three year Archdiocesan Synod process which began in 2019 with the Prayer and Listening events many of you attended, we are now approaching the third year. In Year 3, “The Church Engages” and small groups plan to meet in every parish to learn, pray and discuss the three focus areas outlined by Archbishop Hebda. These three areas consist of:

  1. Forming parishes that are at the service of evangelization
  2. Forming missionary disciples who know Jesus’ love and respond to his call
  3. Forming youth and young adults in and for a Church that is always young

We invite all parishioners to join in the upcoming six small group sessions to learn, pray and discuss the three focus areas beginning in September, 2021. Parish feedback will then be used to help inform the Deanery consultation in early 2022. The process will then culminate in the Archdiocesan Synod Assembly held Pentecost weekend, June 3-5, 2022. Please save the dates for meetings at St. Stan’s on September 19, 26; October 3, 10, 17 and 24.  All small sessions will be held 11am – 1pm in the Church Hall.  For further information on the Archdiocese Synod please visit archspm.org/synod.

Parish Community Meetings w/Stewardship Committee @ St. Stan's Church Hall
Oct 20 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Our Parish Community has gone through significant changes over the last couple of years, and we have all faced together the challenge and hardships around the COVID19 pandemic this past year and going forward.

Our Pastoral Councils (Finance and Parish Councils), Trustees and Parish Administrator have been meeting regularly to review our financial position and the current state of affairs at St. Stan’s. We agreed it is important at this time to form a St. Stan’s Stewardship Committee to help facilitate discussions with our entire Parish Community in an effort to address the current and future needs of St. Stan’s.

The Stewardship Committee will involve St. Stan’s Parishioners from the Pastoral Councils, St. Stan’s Staff and Members of our Congregation. This group plans to host discussion meetings for the entire Parish Community on five Wednesday evenings this fall to address different topics important to our mission at St. Stan’s Parish. Please Save the Dates for these Wednesday Evenings @ 6:00 – 7:30pm October 6, 20, 27 and November 3 and 10.  An agenda for each of the Wednesday meetings will be provided this fall.

Masks required.

Holy is any place where it is safe to tell your story. Holy is any place that creates justice.
