How aware is your parish and parish school of Catholics becoming members of another religion? What is it about other religions that seem so attractive?
What processes reconciliation does your school/parish have for people, who have been hurt and left because of a community member? How often are these processes of reconciliation used?
How do you respond to those "who have found Jesus" in another Church?
Many people say "I went to a Catholic Church and no one spoke to me." How important is the 'welcome' in the life of your parish and how is this actively embraced?
In the past the Church has had rich contributions from the likes of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, Catholic Women's League, Legion of Mary, etc. Today many of these organisations struggle to find members. What's changed? What sort of organisations do we need today?
How does your parish encourage people to move from a simple Sunday Mass attendance to a full and active life in the parish?
How can we respond to those who say, "You don't have to go to Mass to be a good person."?
