PARISH MEETINGS

 

Our Parish Gatherings to Discuss the Issues
     and to Offer Suggestions for Addressing
        our Church's Time of Crisis


On September 12 and 13 parishioners from Our Lady of Good Counsel and Holy Disciples gathered to pray for the Church, for the victims of abuse, and to ask God's guidance to address the failings of our pastoral leadership. 

After our prayer together, we gathered in small groups to respond to two specific questions:

1 In light of the abuse scandal, what has weighed most heavily on your hearts these past weeks?

2 In light of the abuse scandal, what do you most want our Archbishop and the other American bishops to hear?

The written "verbatim" responses to these two questions are available here

Follow up gatherings took place on

October 10 at 7:00pm at Our Lady of Good Counsel in Eatonville
October 11 at 7:00pm at Holy Disciples in Puyallup

The questions which guided our discussion came from Archbishop Sartain:

1 What ideas do you have to help solve the problem of governance for our Church?
2 How do we better involve the People of God in the process?
3 What suggestions do you have for a unified pastoral strategy for our Archdiocese?
