"Parish Pastoral Council: The Engine for Building Communities of Disciples?"

One of the fruits of the Second Vatican Council was the creation of parish pastoral councils.  Parishes have been operating pastoral councils for fifty years and a lot has happened.  What have we learned in that time?  Pope Francis and the US Bishops are calling us to a New Evangelization which itself is both old and new.  How does all this fit together as we strive to create vibrant pastoral councils and parishes for today and tomorrow?  Workshop will present some history, theology, but most of all a lot of good usable practical ideas and suggestions.

Presenter:  Mark Mogilka
