St. John the Evangelist parish in Columbia began their planning efforts in November of 2019. The planning team wanted to build on the diversity of their parishioners and community by welcoming all, by serving the underserved, and by being a beacon of hope that fights injustice. They launched their plan with a revival this past fall. They are focusing their initial efforts on:
- Actively engaging diversity in their liturgy planning and celebrations seeking a more inclusive community
- Creating Outreach to Underserved Groups
- Incorporating into all programming a follow-up experience to seek continued engagement in parish life
- Strategically improving their planning and communications seeking to engage greater ownership and volunteerism in parish activities
