After a summer break, we are back on board and have resumed our work on the Pastoral Plan which will be released this year! Specifically, we are developing recommendations that your parish can engage with, to further build a culture of discipleship and evangelisation where you are.

It is hard to believe that Lent is almost upon us but it is a time of conversion and hope – the season reminds us that at the heart of our growth as disciples is a renewed belief in Jesus, Son of God, and the mission of his Church. It is an apt time for pastoral planning, reminding us of the need to match the faith that we live with the Gospel mission we have been called to fulfil.

As we will share in the March edition of the Catholic Outlook, our Pastoral Plan depends on the involvement of every disciple in the Parramatta Diocese. Only our common and continual conversion to Jesus’ person and his message can lead to a heart for service and a heart for evangelisation. Only when people begin to grow in the Gospel can the Church begin to grow.

We hope our Pastoral Plan will be a resource for the growth of your faith and that of your community in the years to come.
