Drawing inspiration from Psalm 119, the Planning Team from St. Ann Hagerstown reflected on their confidence and reliance on the light of the Holy Spirit to guide and direct their efforts to fulfill their mission of being a “Welcoming Catholic Community that loves God, Forms Disciples, Serves Others and Changes Lives.” The Team stressed the primacy of prayer for holiness and for mission as they developed this plan. They also clearly outlined key measures for their initiatives which will lead to accountability as they work on them. The involvement of the lay faithful in the development and implementation of this plan truly made this strategic process a group effort. The plan is well articulated and beautifully laid out which will encourage their parishioners to join the efforts to transform this parish and the surrounding community in Hagerstown.
