The pace on the Road to Renewal within the Diocese of Buffalo accelerates following the review of draft parish families by the Diocesan Pastoral Council on Oct. 30.
Of the 36 parish families that were originally drafted, 12 families submitted proposed changes to their families. On Nov. 5, Father Bryan Zielenieski sent communication to those pastors/administrators updating them on the proposed changes.
Before the final review and confirmation of parish families by Bishop Michael W. Fisher, he has asked that the Presbyteral Council be presented the final draft of families at their Nov. 23 meeting. After that presentation and Bishop Fisher’s final signature on families the announcement of pilot families will be made.
