From Expectations to Mutual Love: The Relationship of the Clergy and Parish Family

The priest and his family and the parish family often have expectations of one another. When these expectations are unmet, conflict and disappointment may arise. In this workshop, we will explore some of the realistic/unrealistic expectations both the clergy and parish families have of one another and moving beyond expectations to a place of mutual love.
