Lay Pastoral Associates (LPAs) are employed in approximately 65 parishes within the Archdiocese of Toronto. One of the goals of the
Pastoral Plan is to increase the percentage of parishes who employ LPAs as a way of supporting our pastoral mission. The Family of Faith campaign has designated funds to support the Pastoral Plan in its goal to facilitate additional parishes in the hiring of LPAs. Over the next 10 years, support for this endeavour will include a $3 million fund to help subsidize the hiring of LPAs for new positions. The Archdiocese will make $300,000 annually available for grants or loans to parishes that complete the application process.
