Ss. Robert & William Catholic Parish is a community founded in a spirit of unity, focused on being one in the Body of Christ. We are rooted in the Scripture and Tradition of the Roman Catholic Church. We strive to be a vibrant, welcoming community that journeys together in our response to God’s love by loving God and one another to the best of our ability.
This vision is to guide and direct all we do at Ss. Robert & William Parish. As we move forward in the years to come, we will provide concrete ideas and plans to bring this vision to life. We will implement these ideas and plans. We hope to accomplish the following goals over the next five years. These goals will be reviewed and updated annually by the Parish Staff, Parish Council, and Finance Council.
You may see the Pastoral Plan 2015-2020 goals below, or download a PDF of the goals.
The Mass and the Sacraments are the source and summit of all we do.
We will place the utmost importance on the celebration of the Sacraments and the Sunday Mass.
We believe Faith Formation in the Scriptures and Tradition of the Roman Catholic Church is essential to parish life. Faith Formation is primarily done in the home and supported by the parish from Baptism until Christian Burial.
We will continue to make Evangelization a priority of the parish, following the guidelines of The Joy of the Gospel authored by Pope Francis. This will be done through encouraging our parishioners to become evangelizers and providing them with the knowledge and spiritual encouragement to do so.
We will be focused on the Social Justice Teachings of the Church. First and foremost, we will be a great promoter of a reverence for human life, from conception until natural death. Second, we will also seek to respond to the challenges of the community we are in, both parish and the city of Euclid.
We will CONTINUE to be a vibrant and active community where all can find a home! Together, we will build a parish community that is proud of our Roman Catholic tradition; moreover, a community that has ministries and groups that respond to the needs of all who walk through our doors. In doing so, we hope to support a culture of radical hospitality.
Recognizing our limited resources, we will work to continue to ensure our facilities are up-to-date and that our finances are within realistic goals.
