The guiding vision of strategic planning is that the archdiocese will have competent leadership in place to assure full sacramental access for all in the archdiocese, with special consideration being given to the poor, marginalized and immigrants. Recommendations will be mission-driven, financially sustainable, discerned based on prayer and the guiding principles given by the archbishop, and offered in a spirit of respect, honesty and openness.
