Realign Resources for Mission

Thank you to all who participated in the Realign Resources for Mission parish meetings which have now concluded after two months of consulting with parishioners across the Diocese of Lansing, both in-person and virtually (such are the COVID times in which we live!)In total, there were 67 meetings with over 2,600 parishioners participating and approximately 1,700 surveys submitted to the committee. We are currently reading every survey as we develop our proposals, which will come to you for comment, before going to Bishop Boyea for final consideration.  The Bishop has also given us an extension to complete our work which is now due June 1, 2021.  In the meantime, I recommend you watch the latest Diocese of Lansing podcast which gives a good overview of the Realign Resources for Mission principles; a flavor of what parishioners had to say about them; and an explanation of the next steps for the process. Thanks!

Yours in Christ,

Father Mathias Thelen

Chair, Realign Resources for Mission
