How Four Essential Practices Make Them Thrive“An insightful look at what is going right in those parishes that are successfully nourishing their spiritual families.”
A Learning Community is a group of no more than twelve pastors and pastoral teams from diverse regions of the country who are leading vibrant parishes. A Learning Community is not a program or a one-time conference, rather it is a unique process that challenges some of the best minds in parish ministry to think beyond their current reality, learn from one another, and impact the way parish is experienced in the Church today.
Guided by our faith and our sense of mission, we are called to love and serve the Lord, Jesus Christ, and our neighbor through our worship, by proclaiming the Gospel through our lives of service, and by providing a spiritual and educational foundation for growth in personal holiness. We do this for those formally associated with our parish, and for our greater community. We hold before us the goal of being a vibrant and welcoming community that provides for and participates in a variety of ministries, services and events that support discipleship and promote God’s power and presence in our daily lives.
