Diocesan Participation

Enhancing the Diocesan Mission

Facilitating Living the Eucharist on a diocesan-wide level enhances the mission of a diocese in five ways:

  1. Revitalizes parish life, increases participation in Sunday Mass, and fosters spiritual growth and discipleship in every participating parish throughout the diocese.
  2. Provides a forum for the bishop to teach about the Eucharist as the source and summit of diocesan life and mission.
  3. Advances ecclesial unity and cohesion within a diocese since each participating parish focuses on the same goals and objectives.
  4. Provides opportunities for the diocesan liturgical office to assist parishes in creating more vibrant liturgies.
  5. Creates occasions for diocesan-wide outreach to inactive Catholics and the unchurched.
