Sample Prayer and Discernment Process

As Catholics who love the church and want to see it flourish for years to come, we must decide
on what path to walk to preserve the vibrancy of our parishes. Our options for action are many.

hearts, and the strength of our fellow travelers. Some of us are discerning how to respond to a

but we are united by and our need to co-create with the Holy Spirit an institutional church that
more closely reflects the Gospel of Jesus.
