About the Sessions

As part of the ongoing strategic process for Real Presence, Real Future, the Diocese will be hosting Consultation Sessions for each parish throughout the Fall. Parishioner participation in these sessions is critical to helping shape the future of the Diocese of Columbus.

Virtual Sessions

Two Sessions will be held in a virtual format via Zoom for each parish in the Diocese. Both sessions will present the same information, just offered at different days/times to allow for the largest parishioner participation.

What You'll Learn

Facilitators will guide parishioners through important statistical and sacramental information relevant to the Diocese as a whole, to parishes in surrounding areas, as well as individual parish information. 


Your Input

The feedback provided during these sessions will be used to draft new models for review by parishioners in early 2022.

Why should I attend?

The Parish Consultation Sessions are a vital part of the planning process that encourages parishioners to offer insights and perspectives on the future planning of their parish.  

The consultation process will continue throughout 2022 until final models are approved.  No decisions have been made regarding any parish, and none will be made until feedback is gathered directly from parishioners through the consultation process.

Every parishioner in the Diocese is encouraged to attend!
