The Called for Mission Series is a collection of formation sessions created to accompany the life & faith development of council members, as they support, advise, consult, plan and help articulate the mission of each parish within the wider mission of God.
What is formation? What is the difference between formation and professional development? Why do we need it and how do we access it? In this video Sr Grace and Tanya are exchanging with the members of the various Councils their thoughts and experiences in understanding the importance of formation for various ministries in the Church.
What is the purpose of the Diocesan & Deanery Pastoral Councils in Parramatta Diocese? What are the roles of members in these respective councils? In this induction video, Sr Grace, Bernadette & Tanya revisit these questions, whilst highlighting key points from the diocese’s council handbook (https://pfparra.org.au/pastoral-council-handbooks/).
How do we as parish communities engage volunteers, respecting their availability & boundaries, whilst setting meaningful expectations.
