This project assists religious institutes facing an uncertain and changing future. In this difficult but grace-filled time, a community can live today's challenges with the same courage, fidelity and creativity that have marked its entire history. We assist communities in developing a timeline, in identifying the covenant(s) and/or partnership(s) that will be helpful along the way and in putting the necessary documents in place regarding:
Administration, Temporal Goods and Finance
The project has three phases of assistance to communities:
Phase One: education and changing the discourse; preparing leadership to move into action with their communities, developing a sense of hope-filled urgency.
Phase Two: assist communities in decision making, facilitating community meetings and chapters, and settling their affairs.
Phase Three: working with institutes through initial implementation process, drafting and reviewing documents, identifying and forming partnerships. We can continue as needed to monitor their progress.
