Pastoral Strategic Plan

“What is Pastoral Strategic Planning?” It is a 5-month process where those involved in the Missions of our Community have been looking at “What we do right,” “What needs improvement?” and “What else would we like to be doing in the future?”   Since late November the OLGC Staff and Community have been busy working on the OLGC Pastoral Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 18-22.

  • This process started with the staff baselining information and then seeking the guidance of the Pastoral and Finance Councils. With their Guidance concerning Values and Visions, there have been Mission Planning meetings underway seeking input in the Five Missions: Liturgy and Worship; Faith Formation; Fellowship; Outreach; and our School.
  • These “Teams” are now sharing their findings and seeking your input to determine the Priorities for the next 5 years. With your direction, a Plan will be presented to the Councils for Approval and Execution.
  • This is a great opportunity whether you are new to the community or if you need a refresher on the community activities and opportunities for you to be an active part of the OLGC Community.
  • As part of the Community, come hear these Draft plans and provide input. You hear about each Mission's activities and desires for the future. You are asked to provide feedback with a written or online survey.
