Together in Faith

Pastoral Planning

Together In Faith is the ongoing pastoral planning process that involves every parish in the Archdiocese of Detroit. The Archdiocese is served by thousands of priests, deacons, religious sisters and lay ministers; operates countless prayer and outreach ministries; holds hundreds of church and school properties; and has as its mission to share Christ with millions of people living in southeastern Michigan. Together In Faith is the process used by the parishes to put all available resources on the table and – with clergy and lay members together –  discern how we can best use those resources to maintain, strengthen and grow the Catholic Church.

Together In Faith focuses on the seven mission priorities of the Archdiocese of Detroit, as described by Archbishop Vigneron in his February 2012 pastoral letter, Forward in Faith to Share Christ. These mission priorities are not just a part of Together In Faith – they are the main goals of every initiative taken in the Catholic Church of Detroit. As part of pastoral planning, each parish identifies how its planning will address the seven mission priorities.
