Parish History - Part VI - Where Do We Go From Here ?
 
 
     For the last few parts we have been looking at the history of our parish from its humble beginnings as a mission of Immaculate Conception Parish in 1951 to its present situation today. Our history is the story of faith in God, hope for the future, and the deep love for this community of Ewa Beach. We have been richly blessed by the grace of God and the intercessions of our Blessed Mother who helped us to overcome so many obstacles and difficulties that threatened the future of our parish. We owe so much to those who gave so unselfishly and generously of their time, talent and treasure to bring us to the point where we are today. We stand literally on their shoulders enjoying the fruits of the labors.
     We have much to be thankful for, and as such there is also much that will be expected of us. That is what Jesus tells us in today’s gospel: “Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more.” We are now beginning master planning for the future of our parish facilities. How can they be improved? What other facilities do we need to accommodate population growth, the growth and expansion of parish programs and ministries, etc? How can we make our facilities more visually appealing, inviting, more welcoming?
     At the same time we are moving forward with our parish pastoral planning. Our parish is more than just our physical facilities. First and foremost we are a faith community of people dedicated to God and serving his Kingdom on earth. Our Parish Mission outlines who we are and what we are about. Our Pastoral Plan seeks to put the Parish Mission into an action plan with goals and objectives that help to galvanize our parish and realize our vision for the future.
      The Pastoral Plan arose out of a combination of input from parish town hall meetings and surveys, as well as that of the Parish Pastoral Advisory Council (PPAC). The Plan was developed, revised and refined over a period of several months. I recently called a gathering of all those actively involved in our parish ministries so I could introduce the draft of the Pastoral Plan, and seek their input and cooperation in implementing this Plan. (A summary of this Plan is included as an insert to this Bulletin.) The focus of this plan will be on Community: How do we build it, cultivate and foster it, maintain and sustain it? This involves getting more of our parishioners involved in the active life of our parish. To help get more people actively involved we are beginning a Stewardship Committee. This also involves a lot of communication. As more and more people become involved in the parish, how do we keep everyone in communication with what is going on and with how people can be in contact with one another?
     To help with this we want to start the T.A.P. Committee (Technical, Administration & Publicity), who will look at ways to enhance and expand the ways in which we can better communicate with everyone. We also need to expand opportunities for social gatherings so that we can get to know each other better and be able to work closely together. We want to start up a Fellowship Committee who can organize and set up such gatherings after Sunday Masses and at other times during the year. We want to expand our grounds maintenance to include landscaping of our grounds. Lets make our Church grounds the most beautiful and inviting that we can make it.
     Along with all these plans, we also want to improve and expand our parish programs and existing ministries. This would entail arranging for parish retreats, days of recollection, more opportunities for spirituality and devotions, different kinds of adult education and formation, evangelization outreach to non-practicing Catholics, enlarging our social outreach ministry, and becoming more noticeably involved in the larger community of Ewa Beach.
     “Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more,” said Jesus in today’s gospel. Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish has received much, and has been richly blessed over the years. We have much to offer and more to give of our time, talent and treasure. Let us look forward to our future together, building the Kingdom, giving glory to God.
 
Aloha ke Akua,
Fr. Scott
