Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann has announced his pastoral vision for the archdiocese for the next 10 years. This document, promulgated on August 4, 2015, the Feast of St. John Vianney, with the theme “Complete Joy: Growing as Disciples of Jesus, Making Disciples for Jesus” is the culmination of the work that he and his Visioning Team have accomplished over the past year.

Below is information about the Archbishop’s Visioning Process:
The Archbishop, after consulting the Presbyteral Council (council of priests advisors) retained the Catholic Leadership Institute (CLI) for the purpose of facilitating a Visioning Process for the Archdiocese. This Visioning Process engaged numerous individuals in the Church in a guided conversation concerning the local church’s strengths and challenges, and strove to articulate a shared vision concerning pastoral priorities for years to come.
