Stewardship: Caring for God’s Creation – Gaudium Evangelii: Chapter 1

“The parish is not an outdated institution; precisely because it possesses great  flexibility, it can assume quite different contours…The parish is the presence of the Church in a given territory, an environment for hearing God’s word, for growth in the Christian life, for dialogue, proclamation, charitable outreach, worship and celebration. In all its activities the parish encourages and trains its members to be evangelizers. It is a community of communities, a sanctuary where the thirsty come to drink in the midst of their journey, and a center of constant missionary outreach.”
