It is the fruit of our prayer and reflection together, the fruit of the Second Synod of the Diocese of Crookston.  It presents a vision for our future.  It challenges us to grow in the life God so generously shares with us.  It urges us to be fully engaged in the mission Christ entrusted to us his Church, to proclaim the Good News to the whole world.  It invites us to a deeper personal relationship with the God who abundantly blesses us.  I hope every priest, deacon, religious and lay person will carefully study this letter.  I hope that all, young and old, will join together in parish small groups, in our schools, and in our families to review and discuss this letter.  I charge our pastors and all involved in parish and diocesan leadership to work diligently to implement the directives of this letter. +Michael J.
