St. Robert Bellarmine Listening Sessions

  • Saturday, October 8, 9:00-11:00 am

  • Saturday, October 15, 9:00-11:00 am

The SAME information will be provided at both meetings.  You only need to attend one of them.

You MUST register to attend either session.  Click the following link to register.

What to Expect

Each Listening Session will be facilitated by volunteers from other parishes.  They will share pre-recorded messages from Archbishop Rozanski and Fr. Chris Martin, Vicar for Strategic Planning.  They will provide an overview of All Things New, a Planning Area overview, and multiple DRAFT model options being considered for our Planning Area. 

The Draft Options will let us see what is being considered for the future of St. Robert Bellarmine, as well as the other parishes around us.

Listening     Sessions

Parish Workbooks

The Archdiocese has composed four-part Parish Workbooks for every parish.  Part 1 presents All Things New.  Part 2 has information about the Archdiocese.  Part 3 has information about our Planning Area.  Part 4 has information about our parish.  There is a lot of information in these Workbooks.  ALL are available online.

To see our Parish Workbook, click the link below.  The Workbooks are organized by Planning Area.  We are in Planning Area 9.  Scroll down to the list for Area 9 and you will find a link to St. Robert’s Workbook.

We strongly recommend you review our Parish Workbook before coming to a Listening Session.

Transparency and Feedback

After the final Listening Session, the Archdiocese will make public the content presented at ALL Listening Sessions in our Planning Area.  At that time, we will be given an opportunity to provide open-ended feedback through an online survey.  The survey will be available until December 31, 2022.

We have identified parishioners who have agreed to serve in a leadership roles as we go through this process. They will bring information from the Archdiocese to us and bring our inputs back to the Archdiocese. You may express your opinions to them.

Quilt of the Month Program

Each month of the year, you have the opportunity to win one of our beautiful quilts.  Many of them feature hand embroidery.  For a donation of $10, you receive one chance per month.  For $25, you receive 3 chances per month.  The earlier you sign up, the more chances you will have to win, but you are still able to buy chances year-round.  After 12 months (after the June drawing), we will empty the raffle wheel and begin again.  Each month has a designated quilt to win.  Drawings will be held on the last Tuesday of the month, beginning in July. Winners posted on Facebook.
