Strengths

Long-standing commitment to local, national, and international outreach; enthusiastic embrace of lay-led new initiatives and ministries; enthusiastic, genuine fellowship evident in the passing of the peace and at coffee hour; happy to meet people where they are in their spiritual journey and in their ability to contribute their time, talent, and treasure to the parish.

Challenges

Structurally, having grown beyond a pastoral-sized parish but resisting the organizational and administrative changes necessary to support over 50 ministries; wide variation in liturgical and musical preferences; waning support for children's and youth formation in recent years; desire to become fully financially independent and to cease dependency on the endowment.
