The Parish as Workplace: Essential Realities & Relationships
Working for and with God’s people is like no other job on earth. There are responsibilities of a PCL’s profession that distinguish it from those in the secular world, but there are also many things that remain universal. This workshop will explore various types of relationships in the parish community, what complexities arise for relationships with staff and volunteers, the unique elements of working successfully and serving with priests, and a myriad of best practices in being the generous, wise, and faithful servant leader all PCL’s are called to be. Being able to handle these practical realities is a necessary skill in the effort to facilitate, instead of impede, the work of the Holy Spirit in the parish.
