Apple Valley Catholic Collaborative Draft Pastoral Plan

Over the last 10 months, a team of staff and parishioners has written the Pastoral Plan that will guide our collaborative over the next 3-5 years. The team went through several months of training, reflection, and many evenings of brainstorming, discussion and finally writing of the pastoral plan. The plan has been sent to Cardinal Sean for his review and eventual approval. You can read the draft that was submitted to the Cardinal here. If you have any questions please email them to Diahne Goodwin at
