Christ the King & Holy Family Pastoral Plan
Pastoral Plan 2019-2024
In following Christ Jesus we must use our resources wisely and to be most effective, we must know what we are trying to accomplish and through prayer and guidance we will do it. In other words, we as a faith community need to know where we are going [vision], how we will travel [mission], and we need a map and itinerary [pastoral plan], to guide us.
One Holy Family living as a faith community, called by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as Disciples of Christ the King.
The parishioners of the Church of Christ the King and the Church of Holy Family are inspired by the Word of God, empowered by the Holy Spirit and nourished by the Eucharist. We are called by Christ to worship, to invite all with love, to nurture our faith and to serve others.
