Hughes, Jane Wolford; Barnds, Mary Lynch
Since the Vatican Council II, communities of the Catholic Church have accepted a in the modern world. With radical changes taking place in society, the introduction of the theme of interdependence by Pope John XXIII was both timely and prophetic. The evolution to a more collaborative church organizational style does not imply the elimination of authority, but a more discerning use of authority. The first of three sections comprising this document describes the present situation and outlines: the establishment of a common language; perceptions of organizational style, roles, and partnerships; and the external and internal influences that impact educational effort. The second section is devoted to analyzing organizational style, roles and relationships, and external and internal influences. The third section contains a guide to developing workable strategies for future planning. Background reading on change, partnership/collaboration, community, and values is also provided. (KM)
