Parish Leadership Training


Sponsored by the Neumann and Seton Vicariate Offices and the Chancellor's Office

Pastoral Leadership Training sessions are broken into two specific areas. The Introductory Training will be segmented into Pastoral Council Members, Finance Committee Members, and Corporators. It is designed to assist members in understanding their new responsibilities as parish leaders and deals with the basic civil and canonical responsibilities for Corporators. While designed for new members, all are welcome. The Advanced Training is designed to help Corporators understand their oversight responsibilities in the specialized areas of Financial Matters, Facilities Information, and Human Resource. Training sessions are from 8:00am to 1:00pm. There is no cost to attend and breakfast will be provided.
