    Cluster information


    Saint Anselm and Saint Francis Parishes developed the Cluster Plan in 2008. Since that time, many actions have contributed to our parishes sharing ministries and programs. Implementing the Cluster Plan our parishes have begun to do the following:

    The Cluster Adult Faith Formation Committee has met and planned small faith sharing groups, Lenten Series, and Supper/Speaker events.

    The Welcoming Programs at both parishes have been reviewed and improvements implemented including our monthly new parishioner breakfasts.

    Our cluster Evangelization Committee has developed outreach activities related to Sunday liturgy.

    Both parishes will continue to implement additional aspects of the plan.

    About Our Cluster


    In February, 2001, Bishop Anthony Pilla promulgated his Vibrant Parish Life Pastoral Letter. Parishes were asked to then study options and then identified a parish with which they hoped to cluster. Bishop Lennon approved the mutual choice of our parishes, the St. Anselm-St. Francis of Assisi Cluster, in February, 2007. The informal collaboration previously done by our two parishes became structured and a team of five people from each parish including both pastors worked for the following eighteen months on developing a Cluster Plan. This plan was approved by Bishop Lennon in March, 2009.

    Our collaboration has included work together on shared communal penance services, shared staff persons, Generations of Faith, joint staff retreats, adult learning, parish missions, and grief support. We welcome parishioners from St. Francis to join in any St. Anselm activities. Parishioners from both parishes enjoy the joint parish picnic in the fall of the year.
