Parish Life & Development

Through its programs and ministries, the Secretariat for Parish Life and Development supports the work of the diocese and parishes by helping to build vibrant communities of faith and service.


The offices and entities of the Secretariat for Parish Life and Development assist the diocesan Bishop in ministry to the people, parishes, groups and organizations of the Diocese and the broader community in the following ways:

1. To develop the leadership potential of the various groups of the Catholic community for service both within the faith community and in the broader community.

2. To assist in building Catholic parish communities where all persons are supported in their efforts to grow in faith and proclaim the Gospel, thus becoming a community of life, peace and safety where all can come to know the love and presence of Christ.

3. To foster respect for, to celebrate, to minister with, and to respond to the needs of the diverse groups which make up the diocesan community and the broader community.
