Big Dreams and Bold Faith Ideas from the Family Conversation

In our Family conversation on March 31, a vary large piece of mural paper was taped to the wall. On it was drawn a large Chalice. The top of the page was labled "Big Dreams/Bold Faith." Everyone was give 'yellow sticky note' paper and encouraged to put their big dreams for the Church, the Community, and the Program on the notes and place the in the Chalice. People were told to dream big! This was true brainstorming and thoughts and ideas were encouraged to soar. Posted below are the notes copied from that sheet. Reading these may help your dreams soar!
