12 Strands of Renewal

Our Diocesan Vision Document: Shaping Our Future asks every Parish Partnership to use the new structure as a means to evangelisation. It emphasises that Renewal is more important than Restructuring yet dependent upon it. To help achieve the evangelisation of our diocese there are 12 Strands of Renewal to provide a focus for our efforts in the coming years.

Each strand can stand alone but together the become an effective way for us to fulfil our objectives.

  1. Charity, Justice and Social Action
  2. Christian Life and Worship
  3. Education
  4. Family
  5. Formation
  6. Integration
  7. Leaders
  8. Material Assets
  9. Prayer and Spirituality
  10. Priests and People
  11. Vocations to the Priesthood
  12. Young People
