The Planning team at St. Alphonsus Rodriguez revised their 2018 Pastoral Plan to lead their parishioners to make missionary disciples in the Jesuit tradition. Their motto of “Know the Gift, Live the Gratitude” permeates their plan based on the six Core Mission Priorities as outlined by Archbishop Lori in his pastoral letter, Light Brightly Visible 2.0. The parish has already identified most of the lay leaders who will lead working groups to implement the plan. They have internally and externally focused goals for each of the Core Mission Priorities, and will focus on Welcome and Encounter in the first year of implementation. When sharing their plan with Archbishop Lori, he commented that this approach to evangelization was what he was hoping that parishes would embrace.
