Bishop Provenzano and members of the diocesan staff gathered at the Cathedral of the Incarnation, Saturday March 9, 2024, for an important seminar designed to empower your parish leadership.   

 At the event, we delved into core leadership responsibilities that guide healthy parishes by exploring diocesan policies, canons, and New York state laws as they pertain to parish life. In addition, we touched upon the essentials of parish finance and discuss critical areas related to human resources, and property management.   

Listed below, you will find a recording of each presentation with a downloadable version of the slides.
