It is essential to look at who “used to be at our parish,” and now who is not here, and those who might feel left out or on the margins.  These might include members of minority groups, young adults, widowed or divorced, singles, elderly, persons with physical or learning disabilities, members of religious communities or various devotional groups, native speakers of a language other than English, those who might be considering becoming Catholic, civic officials, or those of other faiths.
