Ministerial and Pastoral
The Secretariat for Evangelization and Discipleship works closely with all the offices of Central Ministries.
The mission of the Archdiocese is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Pastoral Planning is the process we use to make preparations to carry out that work. Pastoral Planning is a critical tool in helping us understand our task today and work together to manage the resources available to meet the needs of the people of God.
Parish Financial Services serves the needs of Parishes within the Archdiocese of Boston by providing pastors and staff with the support and information they need to manage their parish operations. They offer guidance on financial planning, budgeting, accounting and financial reporting as well as providing information to help familiarize parishes with Archdiocesan policies, procedures, and best practices.
