" 'For surely I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord, 'plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.' "
Jeremiah 29: 1

 
 

 

The Office of Pastoral Planning was developed to assist the Diocese in addressing the realities of our changing times. Issues facing the Diocese and its parishes include:

  • Aging priests
  • Fewer candidates to the priesthood
  • Declining church attendance
  • Decreasing rural populations
   

These issues require changes to ensure continued health of our parishes and quality service to our parishioners. 

The Office of Pastoral Planning supports the development of Pastoral Plans by the Deaneries of our Diocese.
