Parish Pastoral Planning

With a clear understanding of where we presently stand, Phase Two will challenge us to envision, guided by the Holy Spirit, a way forward in our local community. Our pastoral year will begin with regional training for parish leadership in October to prepare for the year ahead. Using the same tools as in Phase One, parishes will then assess their ministries, compile parish statistics, and reflect on how they embody mission, community, and formation in their local reality. This second round of assessment will help parishes better understand their typical one year cycle as they begin to plan for the next three years. This assessment will also serve as the baseline health indicator of the parish, providing a comparison point for future annual assessments. During Phase Two, each parish will also develop an individualized strategic plan for itself. Our parishes vary greatly in size geography, resources,, and charisms – individualized plans, developed locally by pastors and parishioners, will allow each of our parishes to live out our three key themes in the best way for their unique context. We will gather in May 2016 for our Assembly of the People of God, which will focus on training and encouraging parishioners. Pastoral Plans will be completed and submitted to Archbishop Mancini by June 30, 2016, for implementation at the parish level beginning September 2016. During Phase Two we will also implement our new financial campaign and its three annual collections.

Parish Implementation

With our pastoral plans in place and underway, Phase Three becomes the enactment of our process of prayerful discernment and planning. The consistent cycle begun in phase two will continue for the following three years. Each year will include a regional gathering in October to begin and train for the pastoral year, followed by a time of parish assessment and analysis of parish statistics. Lent will remain a time for learning and reflecting, as parishes complete an annual review comparing their present state to their strategic plan. Near the end of each pastoral year, in late May, we will gather as a diocese for our Assembly of the People of God. The Assemblies will be closely tailored to the needs of our faithful, as indicated by the areas of concern or weakness identified in the parish discernment process and parish annual reviews. In this way, the diocese will be able to support the growth and renewal of our parishes based on their specific needs. This consistent cycle will repeat in the same way for the next three pastoral years (September 2016 to June 2017; September 2017 to June 2018; September 2018 to June 2019). In June 2019, we will gather as a diocese for our Assembly of the People of God to mark the end this five year period, celebrate our progress, and prepare for our future.
