Letter from Bishop Brennan 6/6/21

A Message from Bishop Brennan

The Diocese of Columbus announces Real Presence, Real Future, a strategic initiative aimed at expanding the presence of Christ throughout the Diocese over the next three years and preserving the Faith for future generations. Watch this video to hear more directly from me:

This initiative aims to re-imagine how the Church serves her people through a process or listening to the needs of the people, hearing their ideas, concerns, and desires. This planning and consultation phase will be held throughout 2021 and the findings will be implemented over the next few years. The full scope of the Real Presence, Real Future initiative will prepare the Diocese to increase its Catholic presence over the next 10 to 20 years and is intended to meet the many needs of the Diocese of Columbus’ diverse areas and ethnicities, emphasizing the utilization of active diocesan priests and deacons, mission-oriented parishes and schools, and all other available resources.

Real Presence, Real Future Priorities:
• Engaging all Catholics to reflect upon the real presence of the Lord in their lives and how they can share that presence with others.
• Articulating a plan for a comprehensive Catholic presence for each county/deanery by integrating missionary outreach, parish and school footprints, and leadership requirements for the next five years.
• Defining and developing the necessary Diocesan resources structures to support priests, deacons, and lay leaders in parishes and schools.

Yours in Christ,
- Most Rev. Robert J. Brennan
