Historical Recap – Part 2

In that initial meeting with the Steubenville Task Force on May 29, 2003, Bishop Conlon made clear to us that our focus was to be broad and general at first. He asked us to look at more effective ways of doing parish ministry. For instance, are there ways we can combine resources in order, not just to save time and money, but to improve what we are currently doing? What does the ideal of parish ministry look like? And, how can we get closer to that ideal as a team? Are there gaps in our ministry that, working collaboratively, we could fill? He also made it clear that we were not to get into parish configuration until after we answered those questions. In fact, we did not look at the question of parish configuration until the end of our two-year process.
