A letter to all parishes from Bishop Stephen

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

In order to grow as a synodal Church, it is important that we all have a chance to pray

and discern how the Holy Spirit is inviting us to grow in mission in our parishes and

communities. To facilitate this, I together with others, offer an initial Diocesan vision

for your prayerful reflection. Our discerned commitments are:

To Walk with Jesus and Enable Others to Encounter Him

To grow as one Diocesan Family – Rebuilding Relationships

Forming and Developing People for Mission.

Living Justly and Caring for our Common Home

Each of these commitments are developed in the vision. It is not my intention to

impose this vision. It is offered for further reflection and I invite all of our parishes and communities to prayerfully reflect on them. We offer accompanying resources and support to enable this reflection.

Please contact your parish office if you would like hard copies of these materials which are all available on the diocesan website.

With assurances and prayers,

+ Stephen
