The Office of Pastoral Planning is charged by Bishop Rozanski with providing every Catholic in Western Massachusetts fair and equitable access to the sacraments. In order to accomplish this mission the office continually assess how to utilize all of our Diocesan resources in the best manner possible. While a certain amount of attention must be paid to resources such as building, real estate and financial concerns, those are not our primary interests.
Our primary task is working with the Roman Catholic Community of Western Massachusetts to enable our people to enter more deeply into the life of the Church. Our concern is for ministry, that is, how best to announce the gospel; to awaken faith; to deepen faith; and to journey together to the Kingdom of God.
