Diocese Vision 2030

The Diocese of Scranton's Vision 2030 Blueprint Planning Process is a long range pastoral planning process. While looking proactively as the realities of our local church in the present moment, this process strives to meet the opportunities and challenges of the coming decade in order to create vibrant expressions of parish life rooted in the life of Jesus Christ.

We invite all to be involved in our Carbondale town hall meetings to discuss this process in the coming months.  For further information about the Vision 2030 initiative, please read the January 13, 2022 edition of The Catholic Light, pick up a copy of the planning process in the entrance of all three Churches, or view the planning process on the Diocese Vision 2030 website.
