Spiritan-led Parishes

Our ministry is orientated to promote the faith, cohesion and pastoral life of each church community in communion with its bishop. Priorities include adult faith-formation, training for leadership in the parish community, youth ministry, and analysis and action for social justice. As well as support of the local church, each parish benefits from the Spiritan missionary focus and experience. This allows the parish to contribute significantly to the local community, not only by offering religious and liturgical services but also by offering a variety of pastoral projects and by supporting educational and social activity.
