Everyone's voice needed at mission strategy forums

It’s time to create a new mission strategy for the Diocese of Massachusetts, and everyone’s voice is needed.  Members of the diocesan community are invited to attend one or more of the six open listening forums scheduled in January and February--opportunities to share insights and experiences as the diocesan community imagines the future together.

Information regarding translation services and opportunities to participate in the listening process through online and phone surveys will be forthcoming.  Check www.diomass.org/new-mission-strategy for updates and more information.

Open forums will be held in 2016 on:

•Sunday, Jan. 10, 2 p.m., at St. Mary’s Church (3055 Main Street) in Barnstable;

•Tuesday, Jan. 12, 7 p.m., at St. Paul’s Church (39 East Central Street) in Natick;

•Wednesday, Jan. 20, 7 p.m., at Christ Church (33 Central Street) in Andover;
