The Pastoral Conversion of the Parish Community in the Service of the Evangelising Mission of the Church

This new instruction from the Congregation for the Clergy tackles many of the issues surrounding the renewal or “conversion” of parish and diocesan structures into more missionary entities, including ways of assigning pastoral ministry within the parish, the role of the pastoral council, the provision of the sacraments, and the suppression or merging of parishes. The document will be released on 31st July 2020.

Once the Abbey Bookshop is able to open copies will be available for sale at £5.95. In the meantime, the document can be read here.
