Apple Valley Catholic Collaborative Draft Pastoral Plan

Over the last 10 months, a team of staff and parishioners has written the Pastoral Plan that will guide our collaborative over the next 3-5 years. The team went through several months of training, reflection, and many evenings of brainstorming, discussion and finally writing of the pastoral plan. The plan has been sent to Cardinal Sean for his review and eventual approval. You can read the draft that was submitted to the Cardinal here. If you have any questions please email them to Diahne Goodwin at

Approved Pastoral Plan - June 21, 2016


At this time we need to replenish the membership of
our collaborative pastoral council (CPC). The principal
tasks of the CPC are to enhance communication
and make suggestions concerning pastoral
work; review the draft collaborative pastoral plan
and assist with a reconsideration of parish activities
in light of the pastoral plan once it becomes official.
The normal term of service is 3 years, but a shorter
period is possible. Please speak to Deacon Charlie,
Diahne Goodwin, or Fr. Walter if you have questions
or wish to serve on the council.
