The very best football teams make “adjustments” to attain positive outcomes in the second half of the game. Councils are no different. Why keep doing things that aren’t working.

Tues., March 24, 2020 | 6:30 p.m. Moutain Time – Turning Your Clergy into Your Best Recruiters
The most important thing to remember is that the council must serve its members, parish and diocese for it to be trusted and accepted.
