Preliminary Planning - Develop a process with the parish leadership that will assist in the assessment of the parish physical and spiritual future needs. -Develop committees, Develop Schedules, Clarify tasks, Review parish mission statement, Needs survey for parish committee, Retreats Programming - Review parish requirements through open meetings with advisory groups and parish committees. Determine short-range goals and long-range goals. Space requirements for new or expanded worship space. Design Process - Work with parish in formulation of workshops that relate to worship environment and the space requirements for rites and rituals. The workshops are designed to gain as much participation as possible from community.
As we transition from one worship environment to another we must be sensitive to the history of the community. Each individual should have an opportunity to vision with others the environment for gathering together. We must find the story of the community, be inclusive and invite all to participate. This is a time for the parish community to renew its mission, and relearn who they are.
