Families of Parishes
Families of Parishes

Synod '16 called for a complete renewal of the structures of our parishes to make them radically mission-oriented. Our goal is to make our parishes places where individuals and families can encounter Jesus anew, grow as disciples, and be equipped to be witnesses to the Risen Christ.

The Goal – To renew our parishes so they become places where individuals and families encounter Jesus and grow as missionary disciples.

The Plan – To respond in faith to the challenges we face and to take the necessary steps to better equip our parish communities for mission.

Our Resolve – To advance with an unshakable conviction the truth of the Gospel and a love that compels us to share the Good News with those around us.
