Msgr. Mike Tierney takes only three minutes to outline how a parish can – and should – use collaboration to make sure its planning process is effective.

Msgr. Mike concedes that it may seem easier for just the pastor alone or in company with staff to develop a plan and announce it to the parish.

But he warns that it’s better to invite parishioners to participate in the planning process because the process matters when it comes to getting buy-in and active support from the whole parish for the plan.

Msgr. Mike proposes a simple way to identify the core needs of a parish and to set a direction for meeting them.
