Turning Your Clergy into Your Best Recruiters

The most important thing to remember is that the council must serve its members, parish and diocese for it to be trusted and accepted.

This webcast will focus on:

  • Winning over your pastor as the number one supporter of your council
  • Showcasing your council in the parish through a common mission
