"The January  issue of the Journal contains disquieting news affecting the future of our church. .... All of this speaks to a church in serious decline both financially and attendance-wise but the subject doesn't seem to be discussed at either the diocesan or parish level". "The church should consider setting up a Future Planning Task Force with a mandate to produce answers to two questions: 1. why has attendance declined since the 1990s ? and 2. What can be done to reverse this decline ? Nothing should be off the table for discussion, including the liturgy. ... The task force should be small but should contain representation from the episcopacy, the clergy and the laity and should meet early in 2012 in a one-week retreat. The results of this brainstorming exercise with the guidance of the Holy Spirit would be reported to CoGS for whatever action it wishes to take".
