Connected in the Spirit
posted on May 7, 2015
In 2013, Archbishop Tobin launched the Connected in the Spirit process in Indianapolis, forming cohorts of two to five parishes, asking each to begin looking at ways they could work together in a spirit of common mission to serve the Catholic community of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. St. Monica is in Cohort 13 working together with St. Michael’s and St. Gabriel’s. After about a year of work by our planning team, the next step was to create an Implementation Team, which includes the priests, one staff member, one parish council member, and parishioners from each parish. At St. Monica, the team consists of Fr. Todd, Mel Ullrich, Carlos Alexander, Al Mytty, and Percy Consiglieri.
Together, our cohort has established four goals. One of the first goals was for our parish priests to work together to coordinate masses so parishioners have multiple options for mass times and our priests have ample coverage when needed.

Another goal was to make sure we kept parishioners in the loop about the Connected in the Spirit Process, which is what we're doing here!
Our remaining goals include:
- Engaging Youth in the Life of the Parish
- Engaging Young Adults in the Life of the Parish
- Promoting Good Stewardship so that Parishes are Financially Viable now and into the future.
