Warwick Pastoral Planning Update
The following is a list of what was discussed at the Warwick Pastoral Planning meeting that was held on Tuesday, June 27th at St. Rita’s Church.
St. Rita and St. Timothy Parishes will be affiliating with each other with the hope of yoking within a year. The pastor of St. Timothy will become the administrator of St. Rita.
St. Rose and Clement, St. Catherine, and St. Francis Parishes have begun to discuss the future of their parishes. This conversation will be ongoing for about two to three years.
St. Peter Parish and Tri-Parish School will join the conversation with St. Timothy and St. Rita Parishes
St. Peter’s Vacation Bible School, Autism and the Sacraments Program, Scouting Programs and Venturing Program, will be offered to all the parishes of Warwick.
Former parishioners from St. Williams continue to join our parish. We extend a warm welcome to the new members of our parish family.
St. Gregory Parish has not participated in any of our discussions.
St. Peter Parish remains a strong and active parish at all levels. The support of every member of the parishes is needed. I urge those who are active members to reach out to those who do not participate in Liturgy or support the parish on a regular basis, by inviting them to share their time, treasure, and talent with their parish.
May God continue to bless the good work he has begun in us. You have a remembrance in all my prayers. Have a great summer. Pray for us.
Rev. Roger C. Gagné
