Amoris Laetitia Pastoral Plan

This broad and detailed pastoral plan is the first of its kind in implementing Pope Francis’s 2016 apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia at the parish level. The pastoral plan considers the challenges that individuals, couples and families encounter today in a highly secularized culture, and encourages parishes to serve as welcoming places for all, particularly those who might be disillusioned or disaffected by contemporary society. In this document, all individuals, couples and families are encouraged to participate in the life of the Church in the Archdiocese of Washington.
