NACC hosting a national planning summit on preparing for pastoral care ministry
The NACC was awarded a $30,000 planning grant from the Raskob Foundation for Catholic Activities to support a planning process to convene a diverse group of Catholic ministry stakeholders engaged in pastoral care ministry. The planning process statement was: “The NACC, with its mission to continue the healing ministry of Jesus in the name of the Church, seeks to provide leadership with key Catholic ministry partners to ensure the appropriate preparation for pastoral care ministry for diverse pastoral care settings to ensure the highest quality of pastoral care for the most vulnerable.” Plans include holding two planning sessions, in fall 2016 and spring 2017. The first planning session will be held in Milwaukee, October 11-13, 2016. More than twenty national Catholic ministry stakeholders in the pastoral care ministry will be participating.
NACC 2012-2017 Strategic Plan approved by NACC Board
At the NACC Board of Directors meeting, May 22-23, 2012, following the 2012 Conference, the Board reviewed member feedback from the Business Meeting, made further revisions to the plan, especially regarding membership (See Goal IV, Objective One), then formally approved the plan. Member action groups will now convene over the summer to assist in further developing implementation strategies to achieve these objectives.
