A Light Brightly Visible

Dear Parishioners,

Several months ago, Archbishop Lori wrote a pastoral letter entitled A Light Brightly Visible which he released this past Pentecost. It deals with the new evangelization and parish planning. Inspired by the thoughts of Pope Francis, Vatican Council II, and all the popes in between, it is an invitation to all of us to look at the Church today and what must be done for the Church of tomorrow in carrying out her mission. The pastoral letter is a good read and can be found here: A Light Brightly Visible. I encourage you to read it.

As part of the archdiocese’s planning for the future, the Archbishop would like to know your thoughts. As such, the Archbishop has asked us to take part in a survey about our experiences with our parishes. This can be done either on-line at or by paper. The on-line survey can be done now; paper survey will be made available at a later date.

Thank you for taking the time to help.

- Fr. Carl

and all the saints put together. I adore you with them,
and unite my love with that which your Blessed Mother
had for you, when she was on earth.”
