Ten listening sessions are being held across the diocese before Diocesan Convention and you’re invited to participate. Bishop Jennifer seeks to hear from as many people as possible about their hopes, dreams, and the challenges they see for our diocese.
Laity are invited to attend one of the sessions closest to them and other groupings for diocesan lay leaders, priests, deacons, spouse/partners, and youth have specific dates just for each group. Bishop Jennifer has been working with the Executive Council and Ms. Susan Czolgosz of Holy Cow! Consulting to develop the sessions with the following purpose:
- Provide opportunity to deepen relationship between Bishop Jennifer and members from around the diocese
- Dialogue about diocesan strengths and challenges as described in the diocesan profile
- Further define what members of the diocese need from their Bishop and the Bishop’s staff
Each session will include prayer, a meal, and ample time for you to share your thoughts. A full report of the sessions will be given to the diocese including a presentation with table discussions at Diocesan Convention in October.
