Customizing a Program

Our on-site programs are not “one-size-fits-all.”  We know that each parish is unique.  Some parishes might prefer a full week of workshops, lessons, and focus groups.  Another parish might just be looking for an outside facilitator to help with a half-day worship retreat.  We are prepared to work with you to provide the best possible configuration of services. 

Here are but three examples of how an “On-Site Parish Renewal” program might work:
