Another diocese has turned to the Congar Institute for assistance with its pastoral planning. Our process makes use of the insights of practical theology and promotes a participatory process of prayerful discernment resulting in a plan identifying priorities and concrete action steps for moving toward a shared vision. Fr. Wayne is working with a local Steering Committee to engage the diocese in the planning process over the next few months and to develop a five-year plan that will be promulgated in early 2015.
