Regional Ministry Gathering poster (PDF)

Come and gather with your Catholic colleagues from parishes all around the western region of the Diocese of Saint Cloud!

All are invited for an uplifting evening of learning, faith sharing and fellowship with your counterparts from nearby communities.

Diocesan staff members processed your input from a recent regional survey, and planned an evening in which we can gather together, pray together about our ministries stemming from our Baptism, hear a common message, and then break into three groups on:

Exploring the Essential Elements of a Vibrant Parish

With Brenda Kresky
Diocese of Saint Cloud Office of Planning

(Presentation in English)
A parish is a community of baptized disciples committed to following Jesus Christ. What does such a community look and act like? The life, mission and growth of faith in a parish is illustrated through the visible actions of seven essential elements. We will learn how each of these elements constantly interrelate with, nurture and support the others for the pastoral mission of the parish.

Planning, Building and Fostering a Culture of Life

With Janet Dusek
Diocese of Saint Cloud Office of Marriage and Family

and Jill Svihel
Diocese of Saint Cloud Office of Marriage and Family

(Presentation in English)
This session is designed for parish leaders and parishioners who are interested in fostering a culture of life in their communities. We will discuss the resources available through the Office of Marriage and Family and the events that are planned to educate and benefit those in the diocese. Participants will be encouraged to explore current activities in their parishes and share with one another those things that make their parish thrive.
