The sessions were to hear parishioners concerns, and to talk about the church’s priorities moving forward. Bishop Rozanski wanted to know what churches do well, what they can improve on, and action the church should take.

“That is helping me to put together the basis for a pastoral senate for the diocese, so this really lays the groundwork for that pastoral senate,” said Bishop Rozanski.
