The Office for Parish Life is available as a resource to you and your community, no matter what stage of ministry development you are in.

In the coming months, I will be traveling to parishes throughout the diocese to introduce myself and learn more about ministries in your parishes. Following these visits, I hope to establish regular Deanery meetings, trainings, and other programs to help you develop your service and social justice programs. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn from you and partner in developing effective parish social ministries here in the Diocese of Scranton!
