      Visioning process, listening sessions have begun!

      Since his June 2012 ordination and installation as Fifth Bishop of the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee, Most Rev. Gregory Parkes has been asked, at nearly every turn, what his vision for the future of the diocese is. In his first year as bishop, he was able to visit almost every parish and mission, getting to know the people of the diocese and the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.

      Now Bishop Parkes has begun the visioning process in earnest, calling for listening sessions to be held in various locations around the diocese. The purpose of these listening sessions is to rejoice in the blessings that God has given to this local Church, to envision the future of the diocese, and to surface priorities that the diocese can pursue in service to the Kingdom of God in our midst over a 24–month time period.

      The listening sessions will be facilitated by members of the Bishop’s Envisioning Leadership Team. Participants will be encouraged to write their comments on survey forms that will be distributed at the beginning of each listening session. A short time of sharing input at each table will follow. Finally, participants may share a comment with the bishop. The bishop is there to listen gratefully to the input, and will not be responding to questions at the sessions.

      Three questions will be posed on the survey forms: What are we doing as a diocese that helps you grow in your faith and relationship with the Lord? When you think about the diocese (all the parishes and people under the leadership of Bishop Parkes), what are 1 or 2 areas of focus would you recommend for the next few years? What would you like to see accomplished within the next two years for more effective ministry and pastoral care throughout the diocese?

      The schedule of listening sessions is as follows:
      March 31: Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, Pensacola – 6:30 p.m. (Mon.)
      April 1: Priests only – St. Joseph the Worker, Chipley, noon (Tue.)
      April 7: Pastoral Center Staff at the Pastoral Center– 2 p.m.
      April 9: St. Mary, Fort Walton Beach – 6:30 p.m. (Wed.)
      April 28: Co-Cathedral of St. Thomas More, Tallahassee – 6:30 p.m. (Mon.)
      April 30: St. Thomas the Apostle, Quincy – 6:30 p.m. (Wed.) (Spanish)
      May 6: Nativity of Our Lord, Pensacola – 6:30 p.m. (Tue.)
      May 12: St. Dominic, Panama City – 6:30 p.m. (Mon.)
      June 2: St. Sylvester, Gulf Breeze – 6:30 p.m. (Mon.) (Spanish)
      June 4: St. Joseph the Worker, Chipley – 6:30 p.m. (Wed.)

      All are encouraged to attend one of the listening sessions. Also, the survey will be available online at www.ptdiocese.org in the near future. For additional information, click here.
