I can be easily captured by a good headline, and this one caught me today: “Have we lost our sense of discipleship during the pandemic? Here are ways to reengage.” I moved during the pandemic and find myself at a new parish. Getting involved when there’s nothing but Mass happening on a regular basis has been hard. I love my new parish’s Liturgical Style, I even see some familiar faces each week, but I haven’t found a strong sense of community yet. I haven’t gotten deeply ingrained in the community yet – and the reason? Maybe a bit of my introverted self, but also we don’t know how to build community in the middle of a pandemic.
Join me for this twice-monthly newsletter with ideas of how to Transform Your Parish! Each installment will feature ideas from parishes throughout the country (maybe even the world) that are transforming the lives of parishioners! It’s time to think outside the box, try something new, and engage parishioners in the life of Christ through our churches. My name is Katie, and I’ll be your coach! Not every event will be for everyone, but if we share our ideas, we can transform our churches and our culture one step at a time!
