I like what Archbishop Blasé Cupich has been about this past year. He is with his people at daily mass, visitations hither, thither and yon, an ongoing Twitter presence to engage people, significant statements and vision about immigration, family, Pope Francis. And now he has challenged the Archdiocese of Chicago to dream big.
While he is focusing on Chicago, I suggest that we as catechetical leaders take a serious look at his seven priorities for a vital parish community. What are the implications for us in our own parishes? What do we as parish catechetical leaders need to be about.
I am looking for individuals to share reflections on one of the seven priorities.
How can parish catechetical leaders contribute to the vision "renew my church" in parishes throughout the United States? What are you doing in your parish? What would you like to do next year? I look forward to hearing from you. I will include in future issues of www.eCatechist.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will share your responses with Archbishop Cupich.
