28 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, November 6 - November 12, 1998 Sussex Catholic parishes are focu:s of new diocesan plan The Catholic Diocese has an- not an easy alternative. In 1996. today. Also, the report said that couraged diocesan officials to even in thelonger term, toconsid- nounced plans for Sussex County as part of a strategic plan for the Delaware and Eastern Shore of Maryland Diocese. Included in the plan are recommendatioas for the parishes of St. Ann, Bethany Beach, and St. Edmond, Rehoboth Beach. The plan was developed over a period of time in consulta- tion witfi parishes and also reflects the priorities of the Most Rev. Michael A. Saltarelli, bishop of Wilmington. Growing to capacity, St. Ann parish in Bethany Beach is being called on to establish a mission to 'the west. The only parish in the Bethany Beach area, St. Ann has more than doubled in size over the past seven years, according to data outlined in the plan. It is suggest- ed that the parish could address the needs of the community by es- tablishing a mission church three to five miles away in Dagsboro. According to the diocesan plan, "'The St. Ann facilities have reached capacity and expansion is the population within the parish boundaries of St. Ann was 15,764. The parish has a high influx of tourists over the summer and this group is expected to grow." The plan also notes that some .growth is expected in the Millsboro area, which the Dagsboro facility would assist in providing addi- tional services. Faced with a steadily growing area in one part of the Rehoboth Beach areas and insufficient facil- ities at another, the diocesan plan calls for the Parish of St. Ed- mond/St. Jude to begin a compre- hensive strategic planning process to map out its future. "'The facilities at St. Edmond and St. Jude," the report sthtes, "are unable to serve the exploding resort population in the summer months." Noting that churches are limited in their ability to serve the fluctuating tourist population, the diocesan report indicated that the two-church parish has grown from 880 family units in 1987 to 2,000 the demographic projects call for continued growth for the next 10 to 20 years along the Route 1 cor- ridor." The diocese is calling for a plan for the parish to examine ministry for the next 10 years. A vision for parish programs and long-range plans for facilities as well as a long-range plan for staffing. Rec- ognizing that St. Jude Mission at Nassau is located closer to the population growth areas than St. Edmond in downtown Rehoboth Beach, the diocesan plan calls for a possible expansion of St. Jude Mission to meet the demand. The plan goes on to encourage the present total parish of St. Ed- mond/St. Jude to join talents and resources to outfit the St: Jude fa- cility with space for religious edu- cation classes, offices and a hall, so that, in the not-too-distant fu- ture, it could be separated from St. Edmond as a distinct parish. The plan also noted the growth around the Milton area and eft- Janus D. Stowe weds Timothy C. Ellio00t. Mr. and Mrs. Timothy C. EI- liott. The bride is the former Miss Janus Diane Stowe.
