In A time of transformational change…

  • How do we become increasingly relevant as a Church to the real issues in people’s lives?
  • How is God calling us to more deeply engage our people through planning, consultation, and leadership?
  • What are the principles and best practices to guide our work?

Are you asking the same questions? Looking for answers and support?

We invite you to join the community of leaders from dioceses, parishes and other Catholic settings as a member of CPPCD

Share in the experience, wisdom, vision and practical tools of other planning professionals– and lend your own voice to the dialogue as we seek to help the church become more relevant and engaging in people’s lives.
