Vision for the Church in New Hampshire

Strategic Priorities and Action Teams

We have established five strategic priorities designed to help deliver the mission over the coming years as we build toward our picture of the future. For each priority, an action team has been formed to develop recommendations and spearhead the implementation of initiatives to achieve our objectives.

  1. Develop strong and consistent Catholic lifelong formation in our parishes, schools, and home schools
  2. Support our parishes and schools in establishing a stable financial foundation
  3. Strengthen and encourage our priests in their presbyteral mission 
  4. Develop leaders and build capacity in our parishes, schools, and administration 
  5. Renew and reinvigorate our Catholic schools
