You may not have heard but last year, the largest Archdiocese in the US, Los Angeles, adopted the four following pastoral priorities:
• To foster life-long discipleship and spiritual growth,
• To assist all the baptized in the discernment of their spiritual gifts (charisms) and vocations,
• To equip and support extraordinary apostolates.
Yes, we are deeply involved on the ground in LA and with this initiative but I think it would be a terrific set of priorities for any diocese or parish. Priorities that are central to the Church's understanding of herself and her mission and yet, could be adopted easily to the varying cultures and dynamics on the ground in a given community.
