Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Greetings to everyone for a blessed and fruitful Lent. I have been happy to be your Archbishop for more than a year now, and I would like to share with you some thoughts on the blessings and challenges we face as an Archdiocese looking to the future. I do so in light of an announcement I would like to make about an important new initiative: the inauguration of a process to create and implement an Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan for the purpose of repositioning the Archdiocese, its parishes, schools and institutions, in order to ensure a spiritually rich and vibrant future.
First, let's take a look at the "why," then the "what and when" of an Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan.
