The next phase of our work will involve the Steering Committee (SC) and the Strategic Planning Work Group (SPWG) doing interviews with various people and organizations that have or have had connections with St. Malachi’s over the years. Along with the surveys and information parishioners are giving us in various ways, we want to understand our broader relationships in the Cleveland community and learn from them. The SC and SPWG will spend most of September compiling and digesting all of this material. We will then present the Main Options to be explored to Parish Council in early October. These are very “key” steps in this process and we want to give these steps the time needed to produce a quality outcome. The Options will be shared with the Parish in Mid October – Stay Tuned!
While the SC and SPWG are doing the above work, we are also asking that PARISHIONERS STEP FORWARD to join an Option Team. Each Option Team will take a “deep dive “ into a particular option to discern its pros and cons beginning in mid-October. The Training Session to be on an Option Team is Saturday, October 15, 9AM-3:30PM. PLEASE contact a member of the Steering Committee below to volunteer for an Option Team. We need everyone’s help to create our BEST FUTURE! Thank you all! The Steering Committee (Jim Connell, Cathy Graham, Joe Nagel, Therese Mullen and Pat Masterson, Tim Needles).
