Right now, in these unprecedented times, we know our priests and pastors have a lot to navigate.  We also know that parish staff, school administrators, catechists and parish ministry leaders also are meeting with unique challenges. The more we work together, the better our Catholic faith community will be.

We know you are being bombarded with so much information and therefore we are making an effort to focus and streamline our communications. There are many fears and worries, there are lots of questions and concerns, but it is always good to prioritize what is most important and to make sure we are working together.

We have identified three urgent priority areas for parish leadership to focus. The three items of focus are:

  • Communications
  • Community
  • Finance

We hope this page will be a helpful resource during the next few weeks. Please reach out to any members of the Curia with specific questions.

Please continue to check back as information is ever changing and resources are being added.

Communications

Last Update: March 31, 2020

The Church’s message and mission is critical during this time.  We believe in God's providence and we share the Good News. We must be communicating that first and foremost.

Community

Last Update: March 25, 2020

Creating community during a time we must maintain social distancing is tricky, but critical to the life of your parish. We were made for the community and need it now more than ever.

Finance and Administration

Last Update: March 31, 2020

Pastoral concerns should be primary. However, without the weekly offertory, our parishes and schools will face financial changes. As we continue through this, the financial situation for each parish and school will be ever evolving.
