News and Notes: All members of the Lynnfield Catholic Collaborative are encouraged to attend a listening session with Father Paul Soper, the Archdiocesan Secretary for Evangelization and Discipleship, this Sunday evening, October 16, at 6:30PM in the OLA Church Hall. This is an open meeting to give feedback to Fr. Soper concerning the implementation of the Archdiocesan Mission document Disciples in Mission and the Collaborative model of parish life in our two parishes and parochial school. Everyone is welcome to come and help Fr. Soper and his colleagues as they prepare for the future formation of Collaboratives in our local Church.
