The goal of a parish is not to get more people in the pews but to get the people who are in the pews to go forth and transform the world.
The purpose of going to church is to be nourished and equipped to go forth - to be sent - which is why we call our Catholic worship the Mass: it comes from the Latin word missa, which means "sent."
Let's be sure that we are sending Catholics into the world fully equipped with practices that enable them to be transformed and to transform the world they engage.
