Renew My Church Parish Groupings Announced

As you may have heard at your parish, the Renew My Church groupings of all parishes and schools were announced to parishioners through a letter from the Cardinal. Copies of that letter can be found below in three languages. As the Cardinal states, groupings will work together to plan for the future and discern where God is leading us. This is an exciting step for the  Renew My Church initiative, and we ask for your continued prayers and support of the initiative going forward.
