Central Deanery Update

Welcome to the Central Deanery Update!

This newsletter is for the parishes and parishioners of the Central Deanery of the Diocese of Jefferson City.

The Central Deanery has the most number of Catholic households and includes 11 counties in the middle of our diocese, click here to see a map.

You will receive these updates periodically to keep you informed about the pastoral work and plans happening in your deanery and diocese. The goal is to help foster collaboration and cooperation between parishes — and to share resources to help all parishes thrive as they reflect the light of Christ in our deanery.

Please share the items included in these updates with your parish — by including them in your bulletins, sharing on social media or just passing to your fellow parishioners.

You are invited to join others from your deanery for a Parish Leadership Deanery Meeting on Thursday, June 20, 6:30 – 8 pm at Our Lady of Lourdes, Flanagan Hall, 903 Bernadette Drive, Columbia. The meeting will include information about a small group faith sharing resource which will enable you to become more engaged in your parish’s pastoral planning and news about “coalition councils” within the deanery, as well as other important news.

Please note this is a change of the date from previously published information.

To ensure we have adequate hospitality, please RSVP using this link.
