Heeding Pope Francis call to “Go to the people”  

The Outreach Commission of St. Charles Borremeo Parish in Lima, OH decided to find out why people who were registered in the parish were not coming to church. So, heeding the message of Pope Francis to go out to the peripheries, the commission decided to visit every parishioner for whom they had a record. The project began a year ago and will conclude at Christmas.

The September 2017 edition of the PEP Newsletter, a publication of the Parish Evaluation Project, focuses on the parish initiative and how the Outreach Commission decided to conduct it.
