Renewing the Church Restructuring Processes

Renewing the Church is the official restructuring process of the Diocese of Metuchen. Each one of these processes convenes pastors and key lay leaders from a given area of the Diocese to reflect on the current pastoral situation and design enduring structures that strengthen the Church's presence. Led by the Department of Diocesan Planning, these processes reflect the Catholic principle of subsidiarity—the idea that those closest to a situation should be at the table when important decisions are made.
