Bringing Your Parish from Maintenance to Mission
On October 2 and 3, 2017, Fr. James Mallon will lead a conference for all pastors and their invited parish leaders at St. Mary’s Church in Norfolk, NE.
This conference will serve as the Fall Clergy Conference, but for the first day of the conference, Monday, October 2nd, Archbishop Lucas, in consultation with the Priest Council, is asking every pastor to invite 3 – 5 key leaders from their parish to participate in the conference as well. Key leaders could include parish staff, school administrators, parish council members, strategic planning committee members, or evangelization teams – anyone in the parish whom the pastor believes can help move the parish from maintenance to mission.
Fr. Mallon’s presentations will cover some of the key topics from his book, Divine Renovation, such as parish culture and renewal, evangelization, and leadership. After each presentation, there will be a significant amount of time available for questions with Fr. Mallon and discussion between pastors and their parish leaders.
Space is limited so we ask that if you are interested in attending this conference, please speak to your parish priest. The intended audience for this conference is priests from the Archdiocese of Omaha, their parish leaders, and members of the Curia. If you are from outside the Archdiocese of Omaha and interested in attending, please contact Fr. Jeff Lorig by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 402-558-3100.
Location: St. Mary’s Church in Norfolk, NE.
