It is the most visible aspect of Church for most people. Thus, the leadership in a parish is key. Note that the first thing that Jesus did was to seek his replacement, the disciples. The Church in America is in rapid transition. There are many aspects of Scripture and Sacrament that speak directly to the call and formation of true leaders. This workshop is designed to explore an understanding of leadership that is formed by faith and to compare that understanding of leadership to a more secular understanding. Rev. Michael Shanahan is the Administrator of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish.

18 CONVERSATION WITH CARDINAL GEORGE - QUESTIONS Prominent among the Archdiocese s many noteworthy qualities is the remarkable level of communication between the people and the Archbishop. Speaking about the consultative process, Cardinal George said, One also has to consult the people themselves, in whom the grace of Christ works constantly. The Cardinal went on to describe the many councils and commissions that constitute a formal channel for his consultation with the people. His interaction with the faithful at gatherings such as Leadership Day is equally important informal consultation with the people. Leadership Day participants will have the opportunity to engage in a Conversation with Cardinal George. At the bottom of this page is a form for your question to the Cardinal. You may send it in with your registrations. Additional cards will be included in the materials participants receive upon arrival. The Cardinal values the opportunity to learn what is on people s minds. Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to ask the Cardinal a question. Entre muchas cualidades importantes de la Archidiócesis es el nivel notable de la comunicación entre la gente y el Arzobispo. Refiriendose acerca del proceso consultivo el Cardenal George dijo Uno también necesita consultar con la gente, en las cuales la gracia de Cristo trabaja constantemente. El Cardenal describió varios concilios y comisiones que constituyen un medio formal para su consulta con la gente. Su interacción con los fieles en las reuniones tales como el Día de Liderazgo tiene la misma importancia para una consulta informal con la gente. Los participantes del Día de Liderazgo tendrán la oportunidad de participar en una conversación con el Cardenal George. En la parte inferior y la izquierda de la forma de registro habrá espacio para su pregunta para el Cardenal. Ud. puede enviarla con su registracion. Habrá tarjetas adicionales que serán incluidas en los sobres de los materiales que los participantes recibirán al llegar al evento. El Cardenal valora saber lo que la gente piensa. Aproveche de esta maravillosa oportunidad para hacerle una pregunta al Cardenal. Z poÿród wielu wartoÿciowych cech Archidiecezji, bardzo godna uwagi jest znakomita ÿÿcznoÿÿ miedzy ludÿmi a jej Arcybiskupem. Kardynaÿ George, w wydaniu sierpniowym The Catholic New World, (29/8/06) mówiÿc o doradczym procesie, powiedziaÿ, Naleÿy zasiÿgaÿ rady u ludzi, bo w nich stale dziaÿa laska Chrystusa. Nastÿpnie Kardynaÿ wymieniÿ wiele grup doradczych i komisji, które sÿ naturalnym kanaÿem dla niego w konsultowaniu siÿ z ludÿmi. Jego obecnoÿÿ podczas zorganizowanego Dnia Rady Parafialnej i spotkanie siÿ z uczestnikami tego programu jest równieÿ bardzo waÿnÿ, chociaÿ nie formalnÿ, formÿ konsultacji z ludÿmi. W tym dniu uczestnicy bÿdÿ mieli okazjÿ, nie tylko spotkaÿ, ale i porozmawiaÿ osobiÿcie z Kardynaÿem George. U doÿu tej strony znajduje siÿ miejsce gdzie moÿecie paÿstwo napisaÿ pytanie dla Kardynaÿa George a. Prosimy o oderwanie tej czÿÿci strony i odesÿanie jej wraz z formularzem rejestracyjnym. Wiÿcej kartek bÿdzie doÿÿczonych do materiaÿu przesÿanego do kaÿdego uczestnika. Kardynaÿ ceni sobie kaÿdÿ okazjÿ, by dowiedzieÿ siÿ, czym ludzie siÿ interesujÿ. Skorzystaj z tej wspanialej okazji, by zadaÿ pytanie Kardynaÿowi. My question for Cardinal George is: OPPORTUNITY FOR CONVERSATION WITH OTHER PARISH LEADERS We will provide a few rooms for those who wish to come early between 7:15 to 8:00 a.m. to have a conversation with other parish leaders. Please enter your name below if you would like to participate.
