In January 2007, the Council discussed the need for an added specific area to look at Stewardship, with an emphasis on looking at the diocesan asking policy and grant writing.  

The Council is continuing to refine the strategic plan.  Areas being worked on are:  identifying short, medium, and long-term goals; prioritizing goals for budgeting; setting identifiable progress indicators; determining mechanisms for council and diocesan staff to implement and track progress; and providing a way to make adjustments to the plan based on changing needs.
