OLL News: Relics and Developing the 5-Year Plan - part 3
If Evangelization is truly a priority
then a number of things have to be in place in our parish to be successful.
We have to invite people to our parish (events/liturgy/ministries)
We have to make them feel welcome (at every opportunity)
We have to provide good spiritual and fellowship options
We have to help them get engaged (and provide support)
Our 5-Year plan will address all those initiatives. Some changes will be obvious. Some will be subtle. But all will be directed toward accomplishing our mission: "...
to lead all people to know and love Jesus Christ
That includes everyone already in our pews!
Have you honored our relics lately? They are truly worth a regular visit. Displayed prominently in the church sanctuary, they are as follows.

We're sure you know the story behind some of these saints but perhaps not all. So, we'll provide a brief biography of each over the upcoming months.
