Vineyard


Peter Nixon brings three pieces to our attention in a dotCommonweal post entitled “The Vineyard of Parish Life.”

“(T)he similarities (between thriving parishes): the stress on making a personal decision for Christ and the importance of lay leadership. In an American Catholic culture increasingly characterized by religious voluntarism, those are probably critical tools for building vibrant parish life.”

If you haven’t checked out this blog, please take your earliest opportunity to do so.

I get energized reading features like this. I have more of a sense that ever before that my parish is about to turn a significant corner.
