The link below will allow you to download an electronic version of the master's thesis I did in 1993. This thesis documented
the planning process that went into the development of the Pastoral Plan for the Diocese of Chalan Kanoa for the period
1991 through 1995. The thesis provides detail on the theological issues behind the community based approach to pastoral planning
used in developing the plan. It also provides a case study of the development of the particular plan.
The plan described in the thesis was the second of the three pastoral plans I helped coordinate when I was ministering
in various capacities to the People of God in the Diocese of Chalan Kanoa.
While the plan may be a bit dated in terms of the specific problems and objectives described, its theological discussion
of pastoral planning is as applicable today as it was ten years ago.
