Working with the Parish Community
You are not an island, and nor should your ministry be!
Things to remember and consider
The mission statement of your parish
The calendar of all parish activities (and school and community activities, too)
The established ministries (find ways to bring in more help, and show the young people the whole parish community; outreach, altar guild, parish life, worship, etc.)
Invite the movers and shakers (matriarchs and patriarchs) of your parish to brainstorm with you, advocate for you, and share their thoughts and ideas about the program.
