Indianapolis deaneries to begin Connected in the Spirit next week

The 47 parishes that make up the four Indianapolis archdiocesan deaneries will begin their participation in Connected in the Spirit next week during meetings at the Archbishop O’Meara Catholic Center in Indianapolis.

Pastors, administrators, parish life coordinators and lay representatives from each parish that have been chosen to participate in the process can choose to attend meetings on either March 20 or 21.

Archbishop Joseph W. Tobin will speak about his expectations for Connected in the Spirit on March 20. A video of his remarks will be played during the March 21 meeting.

Annette “Mickey” Lentz, archdiocesan chancellor, and Father Stephen Giannini, archdiocesan vicar for clergy and parish life coordinators: formation and personnel, will also be present for the meeting.

Helping to lead the deaneries through Connected in the Spirit will be staff members of The Reid Group, a Seattle-based consulting firm.

These meetings will help the parishes begin to examine their ministries, parish demographics and other important data that will guide them through the process. †
