Be part of the future of the Church

Be part of the future of the Church

Join a summer session to learn about the changing demographics of our Diocese that are being used to make decisions, and voice your opinion about the future of our parishes and schools. The future of our parish, and each of the 104 churches within the Columbus Diocese, depends on your participation.

During Lent earlier this year, Bishop Brennan asked each Parish in the diocese to participate in the Disciple Maker Index survey as part of the Real Presence, Real Future initiative. The next step is to join one of the remaining online sessions for your chance to ask questions and voice your opinion. Sessions will be held 7pm - 8:30pm

  • Wednesday, July 28
  • Wednesday, August 4
  • Wednesday, August 11

A list of topics will be provided at each session. You will have the opportunity to ask questions (live or typed in the chat box). Register here: https://realpresencerealfuture.org/summersessions/

The Diocese is carefully observing our needs through this 2 - 3 year process.

Step 1 was the survey.

Step 2 was the 40 days of adoration among multiple parishes.

Step 3 is the online summer sessions in which there has been discussion of upcoming parish workbooks, consultation sessions in each parish and a possible decision of future merging of some schools and parishes.

It takes each of our participation through meetings and feedback so the Diocese will better understand the structure of each parish, what our needs are and ways to improve.

Know that you form our Church. So you should participate during this process to keep our Church strong and watch it grow.

Have you been confused about what is happening currently or maybe what lies ahead? Spend some time during these interesting upcoming sessions. Church of the Ascension needs your participation.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us!
