This four-day workshop addresses the duties of pastors: teaching, sanctifying and governing. Effective pastoring requires skills in leading and managing, planning and communicating, organizing and stewarding.

Understanding and implementing the practices necessary for working well with fellow clergy, staff and volunteers, both within his own parish and larger circles of the Church, are key to pastoring successfully.
