Apple Valley Catholic Collaborative Draft Pastoral Plan

Over the last 10 months, a team of staff and parishioners has written the Pastoral Plan that will guide our collaborative over the next 3-5 years. The team went through several months of training, reflection, and many evenings of brainstorming, discussion and finally writing of the pastoral plan. The plan has been sent to Cardinal Sean for his review and eventual approval. You can read the draft that was submitted to the Cardinal here. If you have any questions please email them to Diahne Goodwin at pastoralplan@applevalleycatholic.org

You can offer feedback at:

2016 Catholic Appeal

The Catholic Appeal is the annual fund that helps sustain the 50 ministries of the
Archdiocese of Boston. These ministries directly serve the Catholic faithful.

My dear friends in Christ:
As we journey together through this historic Year of Mercy, we are called to celebrate the faith we share. Through the 50 central ministries of the Archdiocese of Boston, we bring the love of Christ to all who seek Him.

At this time, I invite you to join me in supporting the fruitful work of these ministries and make a gift to the 2016 Catholic Appeal. Your participation strengthens our parish communities, and enables us to continue living our faith together through the beauty and joy of the Gospel.

May God bless you and your families during this holy season of Lent and always.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Seán Cardinal O'Malley
Archbishop of Boston

The Joy of the Gospel - an Apostolic Exhortation by Pope Francis

With the generosity of a parishioner who wishes to remain anonymous, we are pleased to present a copy of The Joy of the Gospel to all who attend Easter Mass. We hope this will start an ongoing conversation on the topics addressed by this wonderful document.

See Fr. Walter's cover letter here.
