The dynamic between the outgoing missionary and the ecclesial structure of the church is at least as old as the relationship of St. Peter and St. Paul. As parishes innovate new methods, new expressions, and new ardour in order to evangelize a new culture and circumstances managing the relationship with the local diocese is an important consideration. This panel will explore ways that dioceses can foster missionary creativity in parish life and support those dedicated to renewal while also offering best practices for parishes in innovating within a Catholic ecclesial context.
