SOUTH SHORE PARISHES
Realizing that within the next three years, the South Shore parishes of St. Augustine of Hippo, St. Paul, St. Veronica, Immaculate Conception, Sacred Heart of Jesus, and
Nativity of the Lord will be faced with fewer priests to serve our sacramental needs, representatives of the six parishes came together to ask what the Holy Spirit is
guiding us to do to build the Body of Christ in the South Shore parishes and to be just stewards of our resources. Our parishes have already been collaborating in various
ways, including jointly sponsoring and supporting St. Thomas Aquinas Academy as well as sharing staff (Director of Religious Education and Youth Minister), and
committees such as Human Concerns and Christian Formation. We are by nature protective of what is familiar and safe, but Jesus does not call us to be safe. He calls us
to step out in faith. So this move to further our collaboration among our parishes is a step in faith that we are called to take. The draft vision statement was presented
to all 6 South Shore parishes' council members for their input. To be clear, the hopes and visions being presented ask us to take this step in faith towards continuing
collaboration on the following:
VISION: Each parish will retain its own name, worship site, history, culture and identity. Develop a system for the parishes in the cluster to maximize and/or share staff,
ministries and programs as well as focusing on developing new ministries. Following Canon Law, each parish will retain its own trustees, finance committee, and monitor its
own finances and & parish property. Common expenses will be paid through an agreed upon assessment (e.g., Director of Religious Education).Some parish ministries may
become cluster ministries. This is an opportunity to strengthen our sacramental preparation program(s), religious education, youth ministry, adult formation, human
concerns, liturgical ministry training and stewardship. By sharing our gifts and talents with one another we open ourselves even more to the work of the Holy Spirit and
become stronger. Individual parish councils will continue to meet and function in each of the six parishes with joint council meetings to be held four times a year.
