Archdiocese of Atlanta – Pastoral Plan

You may be wondering, what is the Pastoral Plan?

As the Church in north and central Georgia has continued to expand, It became more and more apparent that together we needed to understand more clearly and address the very real challenges and, equally, the incredible opportunities before our faith communities. Such assessments lead to what is generally called a Pastoral Plan which is the Archbishop’s vision of how we can meet the pastoral needs of the Archdiocese for the next five years. This document focuses on “what” we must do. There are many details that will be worked out regarding “how” we will move forward as we continue to communicate our expectations of and our commitments to one another as members of this unique and remarkable family of faith.

After months of preparing, Archbishop Gregory has released the Pastoral Plan for the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

After careful and prayerful consultation with Catholics throughout the sixty-nine counties of our Archdiocese, I am pleased to share my vision of the Pastoral Plan to guide our Archdiocese over the next five years. The Plan is designed for you. Yes, You are in there!
