The young people will deepen their appreciation of how their parish meets the needs of Catholics of the past, present, and future
The young people should be able explain how Baptism calls us to participate in the common priesthood of the faithful.
When, how, and why was the parish founded?
How did it get its name?
Who were the first parishioners?
What style of architecture was used?
What changes have taken place in the church building, the membership of the parish community, or the activities of the parish?
What are the present goals of the parish?
How does the parish leadership plan to meet the needs of current and new members?
Inform the parish staff of the project in advance. If there is written material about the parish, request that it be made available to the young people.
Arrange a convenient time for the young people to contact the parish staff so that interview times can be set up.
