Engages ALL members of the faith community

As our Church continues to face change and other obstacles, we provide ongoing support, guidance, and advice to our parishes and diocesan entities so they can create and implement long-term planning. By working together with clergy, parish staff, and other volunteer laity, we hope to ensure stronger and more vibrant parishes for future generations.
