The purpose of the Office of Mission & Ministry is to support and resource faith development in every community of the Archdiocese so that each person can actively participate in the life of their parish. We do this by accompanying teams and individuals, offering continuous training and formation opportunities. These include training of Parish Pastoral Councils, adult faith formation, liturgical resourcing, developing youth and young adult leadership and supporting the development of voluntary ministries. We open ourselves to the challenge and opportunities provided by change, working alongside each other to effect renewal. We strive to ground all we do in the mission and ministry of Jesus.
