Preparing to say goodbye to NA Forum

Attention, ouverture dans une nouvelle fenêtre. PDFImprimerEnvoyer

Dear Catechumenal Colleagues,

I write to let you know that the North American Forum on the Catechumenate will be closing its doors at the end of June. Adequate words are hard to come by just now, but some words are necessary.

We have had to be realistic about the unprecedented drop in commitments for our formation institutes in 2013—less than half of the typical commitments by May of a given year. Despite our many operational changes and event adaptations of the past few years and even with several other enhanced revenue sources, it is not possible to continue responsibly with these institute losses. I am deeply grateful to the Board for its leadership in facing this reality head on and making the hard call to close the ministry we have all known as Forum. Board and Staff are putting their minds and hearts together for the task of bringing the present operations to a close with care and with grace. The quality of the way in which these final weeks are being tackled is a testament to the deep and abiding quality that has been Forum at its very best.
