🇺🇸 🇨🇦 Pastoral Councils Renewed: Setting a Course for Mission

Tuesday, March 5, 2024 • 10 AM Pacific • Noon Central • 1 PM Eastern

Parishes are eager to rejuvenate parish pastoral council meetings but are facing the challenge of outdated structures and a lack of mission focus. The maintenance approach won't drive parishes into mission and altering long-established structures may seem daunting. Imagine a shift in perspective—viewing parish council meetings as something to anticipate rather than dread. Picture the parish council evolving into a strategic planning body envisioning the parish's future. Join us at the March From the Trenches event, where you'll gain insights on transforming your pastoral council into a purposeful, mission-driven team.
