The Church is waiting to be reinvigorated. It's time for Catholics to step it up a notch—work together and take our parishes to the next level. It's time to boldly envision an incredible future for the Catholic Church in America and get to work, invoking the inspiration and grace of the Holy Spirit. I believe our future can be bigger than our past. I have great hope that Holy Family Parish can become everything God intends it to be. That's the reason I have accepted the wonderful offer we've been privileged to receive to be part of Matthew Kelly's new initiative, Dynamic Parish, to help us accomplish this goal. It begins with dreaming together and becoming excited about the possibilities for ourselves, our parish and the wider Church.
To do this, I invite you and your fellow parishioners to come to our parish Dream Event, which will take place here at Holy Family Church on Monday, December 9 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. To lead us in this process, we will have guest speaker, Tony Ferraro join us. He has developed this Dream Event together with Matthew Kelly, and has offered it to Catholic Schools across the country. Now, he's offering it to Catholic parishes like ours. Tony has over 25 years of leadership experience in parish, school and business settings. Among his achievements are becoming Executive Director of a K-to-12 Catholic School, being one of the youngest head college baseball coaches in the country, and he started, grew, and ultimately sold an educational informational technology consulting company. Tony is an avid triathlete who is training for his first Iron-Man. He and his wife of nearly 30 years, Andrea, have 7 children. His wealth of experience, energy and enthusiasm will be a great catalyst to help us dream and vision for the future.
Invite family members, friends and fellow parishioners to join you for this engaging and enjoyable evening. Bring your smart phone to the event and see what you have in common with other dreamers! Sign up now at Duxbury.Eventbrite.com. Be part of this special effort to help bring about a bigger future for Holy Family Parish. Thank you for caring enough to participate!
God bless you!
