(2015) Divine Renovation

Fr. James Mallon re-presents the missionary vision of Pope Francis and his recent predecessors to outline the movement from becoming a "maintenance" to "mission" parish. Fr. Mallon articulates both the challenges and the opportunities for renewal in the Church today. He emphasizes beginning with evangelization, listening to the stories of others and introducing Jesus anew. 

Also important is the commitment to organizational health and excellence.
