Some Information on The Road to Renewal. Buffalo Bishop Michael Fisher has outlined his plan for a road to renewal within the Diocese of Buffalo. The Movement to Restore Trust hosted a virtual conversation with Bishop Mike to share his pillars for change with parishioners. Bishop Fisher is asking local Catholics to help guide their future by creating a family of parishes. Groups of area churches will share resources for education, ministry life and a renewal of healing in the diocese. “There are going to be lay leaders that are formed to help guide parishes in this renewal,” said Father Bryan Zielenieski, Catholic Diocese of Buffalo vicar of renewal and development. “So, there will be opportunities from the beginning all the way through for that lay engagement, and that’s going to be crucial moving forward.”
The diocese hopes to issue a family of parishes draft plan in July and finalize it by September. Diocesan officials say the plan will then be phased in over the next three years. To hear updates from Fr Bryan on The Road to Renewal, click on the ‘updates’ below.
