Parish Architecture, a new word in the parish dictionary …. Well, not as new as we think. Parish architecture has to do with how we lay out our parish so that it becomes an amazing parish; all the different groups we need to work harmoniously, collaboratively, and co-responsibly.
This existed in an informal way from the 1970s onward. We had parish councils, liturgy committees and youth groups who planned for Lent/Christmas, fiestas, evangelisation projects and social outreach.
