BRAINTREE -- The Archdiocesan Pastoral Planning Commission this week announced that they submitted the final version of their proposal to Cardinal Seán P. O'Malley of a renewed method to provide pastoral support to parishes for the New Evangelization.

"After receiving input from all the consultative bodies, Cardinal Seán will determine whether to accept all or some of the APPC's recommendations and also, if accepted, when the archdiocese should begin the implementation," said Vicar General Msgr. Robert P. Deeley in a letter announcing the proposal's release.

The commission worked to develop the proposal through a series of consultations held from December 2011 through March 2012 throughout the archdiocese with priests, church staff and volunteers. The document published this week, "Disciples in Mission," presents the final recommendations of the commission to the cardinal based on the research and information gathered through the consultations. According to the vicar general's letter announcing the document, the cardinal, with the archdiocesan finance council and the archdiocesan pastoral council, will consider the recommendations in the proposal and decide by the end of November.
