What is a Vision Day?
Vision Day is a guided process to develop a shared vision of the parish through small group interaction and discernment. Mr. Vince Estrada, a faithful parishioner of Incarnate Word Parish and a worldwide business, philanthropic and parish consultant, has offered his expertise to guide us through the process – free of charge. As a parish community, we'll spend time reflecting on each of the main areas of parish life: Formation, Service/ Hospitality, Worship/ Prayer and Administration/Finance/ Stewardship. This is a gathering for all parishioners to help develop the future goals and desires of our Assumption parish.
Who should attend?
All parishioners (age 18 or older) are welcome to join us.
Why should I participate?
It's an opportunity to learn more about the parish, to meet more people and to add your thoughts about our strengths and opportunities. Your input will contribute to the future direction and help assure the development of a successful Pastoral Plan.
