Realign Resources for Mission: Latest Update

The Diocese of Lansing's Realign Resources for Mission presented its latest draft proposals for parish grouping at a series of regional meetings across the diocese on the evening of Sunday, August 29, 2021. The meetings were hosted both in-person and online. You can watch the presentation again below. Following the presentation, the lay faithful of the Diocese of Lansing were asked for their feedback. Thank you to all who took the time to do so. Your opinion matters.

Following this video presentation Father Mathias Thelen, Chairman of the Realign Resources for Mission Committee, and David Kerr, Director of Communications for the Diocese of Lansing, did a live Q&A on YouTube.  

The Realign Resources for Mission committee will now review the feedback provided by the lay faithful. In the light of that feedback, they will submit a final version of their recommendations to Bishop Earl Boyea this October. Bishop Boyea will then read, pray and respond to those final recommendations. Most likely that will happen in early January, 2022. The implementation of the Bishop's vision will then be phased in across the Diocese of Lansing in the coming years.
