Writing Parish Pastoral Council Charters

Parish Pastoral Councils are asked to complete new Parish Pastoral Council Charters in alignment with the Parish Pastorl Council Guidelines issued in November, 2010. Please send a copy of your new Parish Pastoral Council Charter to the Pastoral Planning Office as soon as it is complete. You may use the list on this flyer as your basic guide of what to include in your Charter. 



Hallmarks of Parish Vitality

We've been telling you that a collaborative effort was underway in the diocesan offices to create a self-assessment tool for parishes to use. The toolkit, called "
Hallmarks of Parish Vitality", is designed to provide parishes with feedback that is helpful to parish leadership for future planning. Clicking on the image at left will take you directly to the toolkit.

"Hallmarks of Parish Vitality" is toolkit #15 under the Pastoral Planning tab. 






(5) Assessing Your Parish Hospitality and Welcoming

Assessing Your Parish Hospitality and Welcoming

This is a “self – help” toolkit to assist local parishes in evaluating their efforts to invite and welcome people into the life of the parish community.



Young Adult and Campus Ministry

Providing young adults with opportunities, time, and places within the diocese to gather, pray, share, and serve.



Pastoral Planning

Pastoral Planning is a process that engages members of the faith community, invites them to take and express their baptismal responsibility to build up the Church through prayer, discernment, and actions that address the needs of the faith community and those served by it.



Life and Justice

While recognizing the right to life as the first moral response on life's continuum, the Office of Life and Justice also will seek to promote a consistent and seamless ethic of life from conception to natural death, with particular attention to those who are most vulnerable.
