The Vine and Branches initiative seeks to inspire our faith community to come back to Church. It also aims to reach out to people who have not been engaged within the parish community, and who may be in need of faith and prayers, as well as a connection to Christ and one another.
"The pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives. This includes how we come together as a community of faith – in being physically present with one another – and how we connect with Christ and receive the Eucharist. Given that we all have experienced this pandemic together, we are all working together to renew ourselves, while strengthening our ties to our local and Archdiocesan communities." - Bishop Michael A. Saporito
