"The parish is the presence
of the Church in a given territory, an environment for hearing God’s word, for
growth in the Christian life, for dialogue, proclamation, charitable outreach,
worship and celebration. The parish is
.. a sanctuary where the thirsty come to drink in the midst of their journey,
and a centre of constant missionary outreach"
(Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel, 28)
