Pastoral PlanNing PathwaY

Each Family of Parishes will follow the Pastoral Planning Pathway to guide its future.  This Pathway will assist each Family in creating a pastoral plan for the parishes in the Family, articulating how they will live out the six Beacons principles and abide by each of the parameters, all aimed towards vital, mission-driven parish life within the Family of Parishes and ultimately, as one canonical parish.
