About Us » News
Today's Catholic parishes are both the same as and not the same as our parents' parishes. There are rapidly and constantly changing demographics, new ministries and ministers, new funding models, to name just a few differences. The relationship between the ordained and lay leaderships has been clarified by the Church. This interactive session explores the nature of what has remained consistent over time, what has changed and the challenges arising from both. It offers insight into parish life of the future and how to create the most effective, best practice parishes in the light of the changing face of parishes. It offers tools for parish leadership to use for insight over time and tools to help the parish adapt to internal and external change.
June 6 and 7, 2013
For pastors, parish staffs, parish pastoral councils, finance commissions, and other parish eladers.

In this Year of Faith, the emphasis is not simply on the content of our faith but on the experience of the person of Jesus that transforms our lives. This workshop, with Br. Mark Hilton, SC, will look, through prayer, art and scripture, at the person of Jesus and the ways we can encounter him personally and in the provision of experiences for those we serve.
