Our Parish Revitalization Group Speaks

Our three-month-old Parish Revitalization Group, composed of the leaders of all the ministries, apostolates and sodalities of our parish, has produced its first set of proposals for review by the pastoral council. These proposals touch on everything from improving communications to developing young adult ministry. Some proposals are exciting, some are ambitious, some are revolutionary, and all are innovative in the spirit of Oak Ridge. None of these proposals have been discussed by the pastoral council, and Father Shelton has not approved any of them, but they are posted here for your information. Father Shelton created the PRG to find ways to reorient our parish towards growth and away from our annual practice of cutting spending and reducing staff hours/positions in response to our long-term decline in members and revenues.
