Since his June 2012 ordination and installation as Fifth Bishop of the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee, Most Rev. Gregory Parkes has been asked, at nearly every turn, what his vision for the future of the diocese is. In his first year as bishop, he was able to visit almost every parish and mission, getting to know the people of the diocese and the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
Bishop Parkes presented the results of the Visioning Process at the CELEBRATE FAITH 2015: HEARTS ON FIRE! in January of 2015.
