It is our heartfelt prayer that, as Parish Lay Leaders, you will learn more about the ministry of your Priest, and his personal challenges, and the need to grow as co-workers in sharing the Ministry of Christ.


It has been shown that this program benefits the financial health and well-being of the priest and his family, and by extension, their parishes and parishioners."

The Clergy Family Initiative Parish Council Training Videos

We invite you to view your Metropolis’ two-part video series with a personal greeting and explanation from your Hierarch. Each Hierarch and our Archbishop speaks of the importance of having each Parish view this video series, and to address the specific needs and concerns of their community.
