Thank You - Synod - Open Forum.
June 2019

 

Thank You
First of all, we want to thank you for your support and kind words of encouragement during this difficult time of transition. We still need volunteers to assist us in the work of CCCR/CoB. It's as easy as signing up for a committee that you have an interest in.

You have put some "skin in the game" and stepped up in financial support with donations and we now have a few more sustaining members. Our goal is to build the sustaining membership list so we can plan for events and education. If you want to become a sustaining member, and have difficulty signing up, please call our Finance chair, Ralph Gotto 612-419-4746 and he will take you through the steps.
 
Synod
As you may have heard, the archdiocese is going to have a synod in 2021 and plans are already underway. You are invited to contribute to the discussion at various listening sessions that are posted in the June 6, 2019 edition of the Catholic Spirit.
Listening is key but we also need your voices. Prepare yourself ahead of time on an issue that you want to question or comment on and attend one or more of the sessions. Now is the time to be Church and affect the governance of our archdiocese.

Open Forum
As usual, we will not be having an Open Forum in July. Check the LNU next month for exciting news on upcoming Open Forums and events.
 
Have a great Minnesota summer.

 
Still living in joyful hope,
CCCR Board and Council of the Baptized
