Parish-wide Meeting & Parish Pastoral Plan [Draft]

Dear Friends,

I’m looking forward to this Sunday’s (April 29) Parish-wide Meeting after the 11:15 Mass in the Social Center.  I look forward to sitting down for lunch with as many of you as can come, and discussing what’s going on in the parish.  As of this writing, fewer than 30 people have signed up.  We have to give a number to the caterer by Thursday at noon, so please call the office (610-525-0147) by Thursday morning if you plan to join us. 

The Parish Council has been developing a Parish Pastoral Plan for over a year now.  Based on input received from table discussions at last year’s Parish-wide Meeting (Sunday, March 26, 2018), a meeting of the PREP parents and other group gatherings, the council has been discussing and refining these materials into an organized list of Goals and Objectives. 

As we continue this process and refine this document, we again ask you for your comments and input.  Even if you can’t come to this year’s Parish-wide Meeting, you can be part of this process by reading the 3-page document online and comment on it. 

Please go to omgcparish.org/plan to access a PDF of the current draft of the Plan.  You will also find a link where you can give input. 

We intend to finalize these Goals and Objectives into a Parish Pastoral Plan before September 1.  This Parish Pastoral Plan will guide our priorities and activities for the next few years. 

God’s blessings on you and all your families!

Peace,
Fr. Liam

Lenten Meditation Book

Liturgical Press has published a Lenten meditation book written by OMGC’s very own Michelle Francl-Donnay:

Not by Bread Alone 2018

We purchased a large number of the books for use of our parishioners, but we ran out of them and the publisher is sold out. 

It’s still possible to order the e-Book in various formats (Kindle, Nook, PC, Mac and others) from the publisher for 99 cents:

Prayer at OMGC

Here at Our Mother of Good Counsel, each Monday through Saturday morning, we celebrate Morning Prayer in common following the 8:00am Mass. Everyone is invited (around 8:30am) to join us in the daily chapel for this beautiful way to begin the day!
