LIFE TOGETHER

Vision Wall Update & Next Steps

Last month, our Parish Forum provided a unique opportunity to begin the process of intentional prayer and reflection on the future of a Vision Wall for Hebron Hall. Bob McWilliams led us through the rich legacy of discernment that has taken place in the past by reviewing the documents that resulted from a Vision Charrette that was held in 2019. Fr. Craig then invited everyone to prayerfully reflect on the areas of Worship, Mission, Catechesis and Life Together.  Everyone was encouraged to write down what we are doing well in each of those areas, as well as where we can reach further and wider moving forward. It is our hope that this activity will act as a catalyst for creating a vision wall in Hebron Hall.
 
During the month of October, everyone is encouraged to review the reflective prompts and resources linked here as a PDF. Valerie Hanks will be stationed at a table in Hebron Hall before and after the 10:30 a.m. service to distribute resources and gather any reflections. Please stop by the vision wall table this month and prayerfully contribute your thoughts/ideas/dreams for the future of this project.
