    29. Serving God’s People – Pastoral Planning Process Assumptions Parish Leadership Orientation

    30. Assumptions (1/5) • The Paschal Mystery is both central to our faith and to this planning process, where changes in parishes structures are potential examples of the life-death-resurrection mystery. Parish Leadership Orientation

    31. Assumptions (2/5) • Parishes do not exist for themselves, but as a presence of Christ and the Church to the local area. • The vision of Church must be larger than one’s own local community. People must be helped to think locally, regionally and diocesan-wide. Parish Leadership Orientation

    32. Assumptions (3/5) • Strong pastoral leadership, ordained as well as lay – now and in the future, is needed for planning to succeed. • All parishes will be more effective, if they plan for the future, especially when planning is an on-going process and not employed only in a crisis Parish Leadership Orientation

    33. Assumptions (4/5) • There is more ownership for and less resistance to planning that begins at the local level with meaningful involvement by those who will be impacted by the changes. • Parishes will be stronger and more effective, if they work together. Parish Leadership Orientation

    34. Assumptions (5/5) • If and when mergers are needed, they will be less traumatic and more natural if people and parishes have already been in relationship with each other. • Planning resources will be provided in English and Spanish where needed. Parish Leadership Orientation

    35. Serving God’s People – Pastoral Planning Process Goals Parish Leadership Orientation

    37. Goals (2/4) • To increase collaboration among all parishes in the diocese in order to increase the impact of the presence of the Church both locally, regionally and in the world. Parish Leadership Orientation

    38. Goals (3/4) • To plan for a future that recognizes that there will be a diminishing number of priests available to serve and that acknowledges the changing demographics in many areas of the diocese Parish Leadership Orientation
