Over the years of consultation on pastoral leadership and pastoral needs the diocese has been repeatedly asked to develop a set of guidelines for parish viability. The following is a response to this request.
With the assistance of the Diocesan Pastoral Council and the pastoral leadership of the diocese, a process for parish revitalization, reorganization, or closure has been established including the use of a parish viability form. All parishes of the diocese are asked to complete a parish viability form every three years. The results are to be submitted to the Chancery.
