The Archdiocesan Renew My Church Commission forms a recommendation based on what its members believe to be the best structural plan for a grouping based on feedback from the grouping teams and the Executive Committee of the Commission.

The Commission includes:

  • Two lay (non-clerical) representatives from each of the archdiocese’s six vicariates (12 people)
  • A representative from the archdiocese’s Pastoral Council
  • Two pastor representatives
  • Priest representatives: Cardinal’s Liaison for Renew My Church, Vicar for Professional and Pastoral Development of Priests, and a Priest Personnel Board representative
  • Vicar General
  • Chief Operating Officer
  • Each episcopal vicar participates in the review of his respective groupings

There is one archdiocesan commission for all groupings. An important role of the commission is to ensure consistency in approach across all groupings.

The Executive Committee of the Commission includes:

  • Cardinal’s Liaison for Renew My Church
  • Vicar General
  • Chief Operating Officer
  • Chief Strategy Officer
  • Episcopal Vicar (Auxiliary Bishop) for each respective grouping
  • Superintendent of Catholic Schools
