Today’s readings summarize both the tragic circumstances leading up to the Babylonian Conquest and Exile and its aftermath. When God brought His Chosen People to the Promised Land, He desired for them to flourish in peace and prosperity as well as in their faithfulness and commitment to Him. However over time, the people gradually drifted away from the Lord in their sinfulness. Time and again, God sent prophets to call the people to repentance, but they were ignored or rejected. (Read full reflection here.)
This spring the Archdiocese of Denver has embarked upon a process of pastoral planning, and each parish in the Archdiocese is involved in the process. The purpose of this endeavor is to determine the best way to provide continued and long-term sacramental ministry and pastoral care to the people of the Archdiocese. As part of this process, each parish is conducting a self-study and evaluation using tools provided by the Archdiocese. This will help us at Spirit of Christ to determine and affirm what we do well, to assess and discern what we can do better, and to envision and plan for our future.
Your input is important and valued. Thank you for taking the time to give it.
