Thank you for providing feedback on the Families of Parishes draft.
Please pray for the success of the Beacons of Light process.
What is a
Family of Parishes
A Family of Parishes is a grouping of parishes led by a common pastor and characterized by collaboration and shared resources. A parochial vicar (or multiple parochial vicars) or retired priest may also serve a Family of Parishes.
How Were The
Families of Parishes formed
The finalized Families of Parishes configuration is the result of more than two years of work. The project has included data collection from all entities of the archdiocese, assistance from a consulting group with direction and data analysis, several rounds of modeling of Families of Parishes configurations, and an open comment period. The open comment period elicited nearly 8,000 comments and has resulted in numerous changes to the configuration. Collectively the changes from the draft to the final parish groupings have resulted in a stronger arrangement of Families of Parishes that will enable growth of the archdiocese in the decades to come.
