Every parish leader wants to feel their parish come alive and bring people to Jesus. But the reality is, engagement in our churches is declining. People are leaving. Congregations are aging. Even some parishes are closing.

And with the daily demands of parish life, a sense of stagnation often makes leaders feel overwhelmed and discouraged.

It’s difficult to imagine that this is what God wants for parishes.

As a Church, is it enough to simply maintain the models that have worked in the past, or is the Holy Spirit inviting us to put all our trust in him and set off on a path of renewal?

Yes, renewal can be difficult. This is why the Catholic Parish Summit is gathering priests and lay leaders to inspire and equip them to embrace the mission of Jesus — and to provide connection and encouragement for those on this journey.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Visit catholicparishsummit.com today.
  • Register and be a part of CPS in Harrogate on 12 – 14 June 2024.
  • See what’s behind a growing movement of parishes coming to new life and learn how your parish can do it, too.

So, register today and join Sr Miriam James Heidland, Archbishop Mark O’Toole, Fr James Mallon and more in this impactful gathering of parish leaders.

In the meantime, learn more about the Summit and see why CPS is the event to look forward to in 2024, visit: catholicparishsummit.com today.
