Saint James wrote, “What does it profit, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? So also faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”
As we all continue to support and implement the Pastoral Plan presented by Archbishop Gregory, through the goals of Knowing, Living, and Sharing our Faith, it has become clear that certain ministries and departments here in the Chancery are geared in a particular way to help accomplish this initiative.
In an effort to better support the efforts of our parishes and the communities this local church serves, the Archbishop has reorganized Respect Life, Disabilities, Prison and Jail, and Justice and Peace efforts under the newly titled Office of Life, Dignity and Justice. The work done by the good people in this office completely aligns with the goals of the Pastoral Plan.
These ministries, for that is what they truly are, have been active in the Archdiocese for many years. By bringing them under this new umbrella office, our goal is to have a powerful team working in support of our people by actively Living and Sharing our Faith with those of every age and station here in North Georgia.
