A pastor is searching for a way to review and accept new ministries for his parish.  

I would be grateful for anyone who can share their documentation for a process of reviewing and accepting new ministries in their parish.

We use the attached form and it is presented at the Pastoral Council for review and proposed recommendation to the Pastor.


Thanks Bert!  This is tremendously helpful.  I hope others will share theirs as well so we can benefit from the variety of approaches.

Here is something we use at Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux that could be adapted for parish use. We are certified under the Standards for Excellence.

Here's a "ministry charter questionnaire" still in draft form, i.e., not yet in use. It has many of the same attributes as that suggested by Bert Chavez but there are differences. 

Hope this helps.

Here is the Leadership Roundtable's process for determining new programs adapted for parish ministries.  Please feel free to use and adapt for your own use.
