Revitalization

VITAL SIGNS OF PARISH HEALTH

The revitalization of our parishes is a fundamental goal of the Diocese of Washington’s Strategic Plan. In an era of swift and constant change, we acknowledge a need to implement a church revitalization strategy that leads to healthy, thriving congregations throughout the diocese, reversing the trends of decline. In support of that goal, leaders from across the diocese worked together to identify seven key markers that indicate the relative health of a parish -- what we’re calling the Vital Signs of Parish Health. Underpinning those vital signs are concrete metrics that will help parish leaders identify, track, and begin to engage areas of parish life that may need attention. Learn more

This suite of robust demographic tools and in-depth reports will assist parishes with getting to know their local communities--a key element of growing and revitalizing our congregations and a vital component of the diocesan strategic plan’s implementation.  Learn more
