Pastoral Planning June 2021


Let us not as Church be content to simply return to what was normal. We have been given by God this moment to redefine a new norm which more closely embodies who we are as Church and how we will continue to fulfill the mission of the Church, the mission of Jesus Christ.

Archbishop Etienne, June 11, 2020

Watch a video and learn about the pastoral plan on the Archdiocese website.


No nos contentemos como Iglesia con volver simplemente a lo que era normal. Dios nos ha dado este momento para redefinir una nueva norma que encarna más de cerca quiénes somos como Iglesia y cómo continuaremos cumpliendo la misión de la Iglesia, la misión de Jesucristo ”.

Arzobispo Etienne, 11 de junio de 2020
