Mission Planning Documents from Spring 2020

In the Spring of 2020, the Diocesan Pastoral Center was introducing the Guidelines to Missionary Discipleship and a parish mission planning process in deanery-based meetings, populated by pastors and staff and invested volunteers. We were able to offer these meetings in the Winona deanery and the Mankato deanery, but the others were canceled due to the pandemic. Parishes or cluster that wish to continue with the mission planning process are welcome to do so, but the timeline has been suspended by Bp. Quinn. Please contact Susan Windley-Daoust if you are interested in continuing this mission planning process within your parish or cluster in 2020-21.

There were important documents that were not fully shared with diocese due to the pandemic, and for reference, they are included here.
