About the Strategic Plan
Beloved in Christ,
Holy Scripture teaches us that “Where there is no vision, the people will perish.” (Proverbs 29:18) It is in that spirit, that I am pleased to present to you a new and exciting vision for our Holy Annunciation Cathedral.
For almost a year, a dedicated group of faithful that reflect the great and rich diversity of our Parish have diligently worked together to identify such a vision. It is a vision that reflects on our significant challenges, and yet is motivated by our great and holy opportunities to serve our Lord in his vineyard here in the Atlanta metro area.
After a wonderful and enormous effort, we are honored to present this Strategic Plan to you. It’s primary focus and purpose is to strengthen our Parish and parishioners. We have fully researched and identified a comprehensive step-by-step process and action plan to achieve 12 very critical and strategic goals. We have also recruited an incredibly capable team from throughout our Parish to achieve these important goals.
The only thing missing is you. We need you to familiarize yourself with this great work and identify what interests you most. We humbly ask you to prayerfully discern where God has called you to serve and how you can help us create a Parish that is “a welcoming and inspiring community of God so that we experience Christ’s love with all seeking eternal life.”
We need you to help us grow our Parish and make disciples as we all grow together in Christ. It is to this holy work that we ask you to join us.
The future of the Annunciation Cathedral depends on how diligently we achieve this Strategic Plan as stewards of God’s many blessings. We truly look forward to sharing this journey of faith and fulfillment with you!
With Love in Christ,
Rev. Fr. Paul A. Kaplanis Rev. Fr. Christos P. Mars
