About Parish Vitality
As a next step to responding to this call, the English sector of the Archdiocese of Montreal launched its first Parish Vitality Conference back in November 2014, with “Doors Wide Open”, to help provide support, inspiration and resources to our faith communities. In 2016, “Unleashing Our Gifts” was launched, exploring the God-given gifts each of us has and recognizing how these gifts can best help our world, within our own communities and families.
This fall will mark the third of our Parish Vitality Conference series, organized by the Office for English Pastoral Services. Find out more below about what’s in store this November!
This year’s theme
This November will mark the third of our Parish Vitality Conference series, “Leading the Way Together”, inviting pastors, lay people, parish leaders and parishioners alike, to consider the different ways we can all work together in paving the path for our own parishes, so they may continue to grow as missionary and life-giving communities.
