Item description for Revisioning the Parish Pastoral Council: A Workbook by Mary Ann Gubish, Susan Jenny & Arlene McGannon...

Overview
Experienced pastoral leaders put together a practical workbook for everyone involved in developing pastoral councils on a parish level. This workbook takes participating laypeople and clergy members through several steps involving common prayer, the development of a mission statement, developing a pastoral plan, and discerning leadership in the community.

Publishers Description
Parish pastoral councils are organized groups of Catholic clergy and lay people together who have the function of guiding the pastoral life of the community. with the 1983 Code of Canon Law mandating the establishment of pastoral councils in every Catholic parish, and the realization by clergy that they needed the help of laypersons in parish management, parish councils became a fact of life of the church.

Experienced pastoral leaders Mary Ann Gubish and Susan Jenny have put together here a practical workbook for all persons involved in developing pastoral councils on a parish level. This workbook takes participating laypersons and clergy through several steps involving common prayer, the development of a mission statement, developing a pastoral plan and discerning leadership in the community. The step-by-step process is augmented with background information about tasks that may be unfamiliar to laity, e.g., what is a pastoral plan? What should a mission statement do? How do parishes relate to dioceses: How do we reach consensus in decision-making?

Reviews - What do customers think about Revisioning the Parish Pastoral Council: A Workbook?

Excellent Resource  Nov 6, 2006
This thoughtful, faith filled workbook provides a user friendly, clearly developed process to assist pastoral councils in their work at every stage.
 
Valuable Resource  Sep 30, 2005
To date I have bought nearly 100 copies of this book and use them when facilitating the formation of Parish Pastoral Councils. It is a wonderfully thorough text.
 
A step-by-step approach that works!  Aug 2, 2004
Built on research and loaded with examples of how it works, this approach led us through the re-visioning process at Good Shepherd parish here in State College PA -- right to a "pastoral Plan" for our parish. Having a framework we could all understand, and the steps to follow are invaluable when working with volunteers with so many other demands on their time.
A word of caution: get ready for change! Not everyone will want to. Mary Ann's process will take you to new places.
 
Comprehensive guide  Jun 27, 2004
Our parish began the challenging process of building a new pastoral council two years ago, using this book as our initial guide. The book has been an extremely valuable reference tool for defining council responsibilities, criteria for membership, consensus decision making, and setting goals and objectives.

We initially found the "seven essential elements" an effective model for designating ministry clusters, or organizing councils, but have since reduced the number to five based on Thomas Sweetser's book. However, we will undoubtedly continue to reference the Gubish workbook for years to come.
