Becoming the Diocese of the Little Way

Our Future

StThereseDear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I wish to share some news of joyful anticipation for the Diocese. In my four years as Bishop we have made exciting progress in clarifying and aligning our mission. Our new Strategic Plan is the light to illuminate the path of the future through the deployment of three effective tools: Forming Intentional Disciples, The Four Levels of Happiness, and The Amazing Parish. This plan is now complete with an official compass, the Stella Maris, a seal of commitment by me, your shepherd, to service of the mission.
