Temple's Sacred Journey

Strategic Planning Priorities Identified

Five priorities to address the Temple’s future have now been identified based upon the information provided from the meetings that were held in the fall. Strategic planning committee members have been tasked with researching and then developing goals to address these five priorities.  But we need your help. If you would like to assist in this important effort, we would very much appreciate your participation.  Please contact the Temple office by phone at 915-532-5959 or email and let us know which committee you want to be on by March 23rd, 2017. Let’s get started on making Temple all it can be!
