Beacons Of Light

Beacons of Light is a multiyear process of pastoral planning under way in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Rooted in prayer, groupings of parishes will come together as one faith community. These new Families of Parishes will be stronger together, focused more on mission than on maintenance. The Archdiocese undertook this process in order to determine how to best array our resources – human, physical and financial – to spread the Gospel far and wide. Fr. Adam Puntel is the pastor of our parish family. The Marianist priests will continue to pastor St. Francis de Sales as long as their order remains at the church. Fr. Eric Roush and Fr. Barry Windholtz are our Parochial Vicars.

Update: We are beginning the process of yearly goals to grow together as a Family of Churches. We have put together a Pathways Team. From each parish there are representatives from staff, counsels, and ministries. The goal is to look at the six principles of Beacons of Light and begin implementing them in a yearly plan to grow together both spiritually, socially, and administratively. We will begin meeting monthly on the first Wednesday of every month in order to begin forming a plan that will be given to the diocese and published for everyone to see. Hopefully, this will help everyone to know where we are in the process and what goals we will be working towards. Learn more about the Leadership initiative at the BOL website
