We are convinced that sustaining healthy ministerial workplaces, built on covenant relationships and a commitment to justice, equips parishes for communio and mission. Healthy workplaces result when pastoral leadership teams actively cultivate trust, community, fairness, financial well-being, shared values, manageable workload, appreciation and vocational commitment. Still inspired by the USCCB pastoral letter, Co-Workers in the Vineyard of the Lord (2005), we invite you on this journey to help foster healthy workplaces for all who minister in the name of Christ.
