“With Christ joy is constantly born anew”

Pope Francis

After consulting widely, three main areas of activity have been identified as areas for particular pastoral attention: Mission & Outreach, Spirit-Filled Worship, and Understanding our Faith. In each of these areas, five key activities have been selected. The areas and objectives are listed in detail later, and are here in short summary.

Some, like C1 (the diocese to have a comprehensive plan for catechesis) will be arranged primarily at diocesan level. C2 (formal accredited theology courses) are already organised via the OPRFM. Most, however, can only be effective when given attention locally in parishes, or by parishes working jointly within their Pastoral Area.
