Office of Evangelization and Pastoral Planning
The Office of Evangelization and Pastoral Planning provides support to parishes through consultation, training, conferences, and evangelization grants. The office also coordinates the annual archdiocesan evangelization initiatives, The Light is On and Find the Perfect Gift.
To implement the conclusions and recommendations of Archdiocesan Synod Report (2022), a parish-based pastoral planning process, entitled For a Synodal Church: A Pastoral Planning for Evangelization, is currently underway.
“Our parishes, as the place where people most experience the life of the Church, must be places of welcome, where everyone is invited, particularly anyone who might be disillusioned or disaffected by contemporary society or even by our faith community. The Church assures all that there is a place for everyone here in our spiritual home.”
