Intended Participants: Priests, Deacons, Liturgists, FF and YM Coordinators, Pastoral Associates, Business Administrators, Secretaries, School Principals, other Diocesan, Parish or ACC Leadership.
Knowing that our ministries today require new and different approaches and practices, we have invited Doug Tooke to spend a day with us processing the unique challenges that face the Catholic Church of the Diocese of Saint Cloud. He will facilitate our sessions and conversations, which will be rooted in our shared mission and ministries. Inspired by our common prayer in Eucharist, participants will be invited to reflect and process best practices in their fields of ministry. It is hoped that participants will gain and share skills in communication and collaboration, as well as a spirit of positive motivation to do God’s work.
(In collaboration with Diocesan Offices of: Communication, Planning, Worship, Catholic Education Ministries, Marriage and Family, Multicultural Ministries, Human Resources)
