Human Dignity and Solidarity

Parish and Ministries

Action Plan

At present, we have preached at over 180 parishes. The Renew My Church process has merged some parishes under a new parish name. Former parish church names are indicated in parentheses. Some parishes have a parish ministry around domestic violence but not all. Some disbanded during Covid -19.
