Weekly Checklist

Wednesday, April 10, 2024

April 11, 2024 - 2 p.m.

Communication Conversation: Enhancing Workflow

Mark your calendars and join this virtual gathering with Sinclaire to exchange ideas, gain valuable insights, and elevate your communication efforts. Parish administrators, clergy, and anyone interested in enhancing communication are welcome to join. Our goal is to provide practical strategies, share insights on current trends, and foster inspiration and collaboration among participants. This series will be more discussion-based and less learning-intensive than the Communications as Evangelism series.

April 13, 2024 - 9 a.m.

Anti-Bias Workshop

This program invites us to look at the bias we all carry around any number of things, including gender, physical mobility, people’s size, shape, their age. It’s taking a look at a lot of things that get in our way of welcoming everyone into our communities in a deeply genuine way. We will gather Saturday, April 13, from 9 a.m. until about 2:30 p.m.

If you are considering a Capital Campaign in 2024 or 2025 or beyond, this roundtable on Zoom will provide a chance for you to learn about resources, consultants, and successes across the diocese.
