Originally published by the (then) Commission for Pastoral Renewal and Adult Faith Development in October 2007, Parish Pastoral Councils: A Framework for Developing Diocesan Norms and Parish Guidelines was widely welcomed. With our rapidly changing context and the reality that practice continually generates further learning, a growing interest has been shown in a revised version. To ensure that the document continues to be a resource which offers encouragement and guidance to all those concerned with the development and sustainability of Parish Pastoral Councils, a task group was set up by the Council for Pastoral Renewal and Adult Faith Development in the summer of 2010.

This task group sought as many impressions and responses as possible from diocesan personnel and members of Parish Pastoral Councils, by means of questionnaires, focus groups and one-to-one conversations with those using the document. The exercise produced a vibrant exchange of views and reflections on how Parish Pastoral Councils can be developed as faith-based groups, recognising the need for ongoing training and formation, providing continuity and sustainability in times of transition, and appreciating the central importance of communication.

The revised document, Living Communion: Vision and Practice for Parish Pastoral Councils in Ireland Today, will, with Gods grace, also lead to continued exchanges and conversations as we journey, learning together, into the future.
