Preparing to welcome a new Pastor?

The Office of Pastoral Ministries has completed a new Pastoral Transition Handbook to guide school and parish leaders on how to support a parish leadership transition well. As priests move to new assignments, a parish is in transition. This handbook has been created to help navigate this time of flux.  Explore suggestions, insights, guidelines and resources. Spanish version is in development.
