Changing Pastors: A Resource for Pastoral Transitions

Changing Pastors: A Resource for Pastoral Transitions




The strongest parishes have pastors with a mission and goals that are supported and enhanced by their parishioners. A change in pastors threatens to upset a nicely balanced applecart. To make sure the essential mission of the parish keeps moving forward, outgoing and incoming pastors and parishioners need to manage the transition. This book offers a new method for transition that allows time for the parish and the outgoing pastor to grieve the loss, an interim period between pastors for the parishioners to reflect, and a time for the parishioners and the new pastor to discover what they can offer each other.
