ATLANTA—Parish leadership teams from across the archdiocese, the nation and as far away as Canada visited Atlanta March 13 to 15 to learn how parishes can be healthier organizations.
More than 1,080 people attended the Amazing Parish conference, held at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis.
The Denver-based organization, The Amazing Parish, offered the workshop-style retreat with Mass and prayer, presentations, team sessions and question-and-answer periods. Registered pastors each brought four team members. Thirty-three parishes from the Archdiocese of Atlanta participated.
Patrick Lencioni, cofounder of Amazing Parish, led the training. Professionally, Lencioni leads a firm specializing in executive team development, working with corporations from restaurants to airlines. He is the author of 10 books about leadership and organizational health.
