Dear to God,


Christ is Risen! As mentioned at our Diocesan Assembly, this year is dedicated to “Cultivating a Mission Mindset.” As our speaker, Bill Marianes pointed out at our Assembly, we will all have to give an account for what we have done with the Lord’s Church.


Bill is a phenomenal speaker and will be coming for a Parish Council Workshop on Saturday, June 3. Please encourage your council members and faithful to come. Every priest and parish council should be represented. Let us not miss this wonderful opportunity to learn how to bring growth to our parishes. We only have one opportunity to make a first impression, let us make time in our busy schedule to examine what we do that works and what we could do better for the building up of the Lord’s Church.


Please share the attached flyer with your sister parishes, regardless of their jurisdiction, post it on your website, social media and parish bulletins. Also, please contact the Diocesan Office at (570) 937-9331 or at the email address below to let us know who will be coming from your parish, as Christ the Saviour needs to plan appropriately. Christ is Risen!


Yours in Christ,




+ Mark, Archbishop of Philadelphia and the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania
