What is Dynamic Parish?
A couple of months ago, Father Najim was contacted by our Diocese about a new initiative of Dynamic Catholic. Some of you may know Dynamic Catholic through the books or events featuring its founder Matthew Kelly. Dynamic Catholic has been around for ten years and they’ve spent the majority of that time researching and developing resources that help people rediscover the genius of Catholicism.
Well, Dynamic Catholic is launching something new called Dynamic Parish. Dynamic Parish is an effort to help every parish in America not just survive, but to truly become a dynamic parish. When Father Najim met with the team at Dynamic Catholic, they made our parish an offer they would only extend to five parishes in our diocese. (And we would become one of 61 parishes across the country to be selected)!
In exchange for being a part of a five-year pilot study, Dynamic Catholic would provide about a million dollars worth of world-class resources in books, programs, parish best-practices, and regular coaching for the parish leadership team.
He said, yes. He didn’t say yes because he thought taking this parish community to the next level would be easy. It will certainly be difficult at times.
Rather, he said yes, because he believes our future at Saint Pius X can be bigger than our past. He said yes, because he hopes that this parish can become everything God intends it to be. He said yes, because he knows that alone we can accomplish little, but together, with God’s grace, there is almost no height we cannot reach.
