Dear Friends,
   Holy Rosary & Nativity Parishes have 10 months remaining in our lead time to complete the merger of our parishes.  There is a tremendous amount of ground work being put in place by the participants on ten different merger sub-committees that over the next three months will begin to reveal a clear direction for the future.
   There will be a significant meeting of the Merger Committee and key parish staff members on September 19th.  This day long facilitated planning meeting will seek to address some of the major questions surrounding our merger:  Parish Council Constitution and By-laws, Recommended Commission Structure, Organization Chart and Staffing, Campus configuration (one or two parish campus), Parish Name.  
   On September 22nd, there will be a joint meeting of Parish Councils, Merger Committee, Merger Sub-committees, Parish Commissions and Parish Staff to help further process the agenda items of the September 19th planning day.  Closely following on the heels of this meeting will be two Parish Merger Update Meetings, open to all parishioners, for the purposes of sharing information and hearing questions: September 24th at the Nativity Campus & September 29th at the Holy Rosary Campus.
It is my great hope that by the end of 2015, these key issues will be resolved.  This will greatly facilitate the detailed planning necessary to accommodate our July 1, 2016 Merger.
   Your daily prayers for all of us involved in this process would be greatly appreciated.  May the Holy Spirit continue to animate our efforts.
Christ’s peace,
Fr. Bernie Etienne

Queridos amigos,

A nuestras parroquias Holy Rosary y Nativity les quedan 10 meses para completar su fusión como una sola  parroquia. Ya hay una enorme cantidad de trabajo hecho por los participantes de los diez diferentes subcomités para la fusión que en los próximos tres meses comenzará a revelar una dirección clara para el futuro.

Habrá una muy importante reunión de la Comisión de Fusión y los miembros clave del personal de la parroquia el 19 de septiembre. Esta reunión de planificación, de todo un día, tratará de abordar algunas de las principales preguntas acerca de nuestra fusión: Constitución del Consejo Parroquial y Reglamentos, Estructura Recomendada para las Comisiones, Organización Gráfica y de dotación de personal, Configuración de los Campus (uno o dos campus de la parroquia), Nombre de la nueva Parroquia.

El 22 de septiembre, habrá una reunión conjunta de los Consejos Parroquiales, la Comisión de Fusión, los Sub-comités, las comisiones parroquiales y el personal de las parroquias para ayudar a profundizar en los temas en la agenda de planificación del 19 de septiembre. Siguiendo de cerca los pasos de esta reunión habrán dos reuniones para actualizar la Fusión de las Parroquias, abiertas a todos los feligreses y con el propósito de intercambiar información y atender a las preguntas e inquietudes: el 24 de septiembre en el Campus de Nativity y el 29 de septiembre en el Campus de Holy Rosary.

Es mi gran esperanza de que para finales del 2015, estén resueltos estos puntos claves. Esto facilitará en gran medida la planificación detallada necesaria para completar nuestra fusión  el 01 de julio 2016.

    Sus oraciones diarias por todos los que participamos en este proceso serían muy apreciadas. Que el Espíritu Santo continúe animando nuestros esfuerzos.

Catholics Come Home

If you just slipped away, if you have questions or just don't understand, if you say your Catholic, but rarely go to church and don't feel connected, if you want to find God and to follow Jesus and you know that you can't do it on your own, take another look.  Come back to the family.  Come back to the body of Christ.
