• Developing and reviewing a parish mission statement and periodically re-evaluating and revising it;
• Developing a parish pastoral plan;
• Participating in ongoing pastoral planning;

• Reviewing and evaluating the effectiveness of existing programs;
• Reflecting on diocesan pastoral priorities and recommending how they can be implemented in the parish.
