Renew My Church: Receiving the Will of God

 

All parishioners of our parish grouping are invited to attend a meeting on Tuesday, February 4, at 7 p.m. at St. Philip Neri Church, to learn the outcome of the upcoming RMC Commission and Presbyteral Council meetings in which those groups consider the best future structure for our parishes.

 

As a reminder, our Grouping Feedback & Discernment Team presented to the Executive Committee of the Renew My Church Commission a feedback summary report. It was a very good discussion about the local realities of our parishes and communities. Following that presentation:

 

  1. The Executive Committee forms a recommendation for the full Renew My Church Commission.

 

  1. The Commission convenes and discusses the recommendation, ensuring that the Grouping Team’s feedback and the foundational principals for structural viability and vitality have been fully considered.

 

  1. Per Canon Law (i.e., Church law), the Commission forwards the recommendation to the Presbyteral Council (an elected body of priests) for their consultation with Cardinal Cupich.

 

  1. The Cardinal discusses the recommendation with the Presbyteral Council and, after this consultation, the Cardinal makes a final decision.

 

As with all things of faith, when we are uncertain of the future our Lord calls us to step out onto the water and meet Him. He invites us to trust in Him alone. St. Paul tells us very directly: “Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing.” (1 Th 5: 16-17)

And remember that no matter what the future holds, our Lord already holds us. We are instruments of His grace and He will use us to make disciples, build communities, and inspire witness.
