Diocese of Duluth Five Year Strategic Plan
The Diocese of Duluth Five Year Strategic Plan represents the hard work of many people. It is the result of a transparent process that featured the full disclosure on www.dioceseduluth.org and in The Northern Cross of draft proposals put together by a Diocesan Strategic Planning Committee, planning responses made by Deanery Planning Groups (comprised of two lay representatives and the pastor of every parish in each deanery that met over a six-month period), and now the final form of the Diocesan Strategic Plan (2012-2017) which includes recommendations from the Presbyteral Council (a group that represents the priests of the diocese whose recommendations are noted in italics in this document). Bishop Sirba has taken into account the recommendations of these groups representing more than 250 people from across the Diocese of Duluth and has approved the plan. Download the .pdf here.
There are resources available for pastors and parishioners involved in the implementation of the Diocesan Strategic Plan. The Diocesan Implementation Handbook is available here.
