Working Together in Mission

Working Together in Mission 

Working Together in Mission is a document of foundational importance for Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS) – the company being created to take responsibility for schools owned by parishes in the Archdiocese of Melbourne.

The Working Together in Mission Charter articulates the roles and responsibilities of those in key leadership roles in parishes and schools – particularly clergy, principals and those associated with school advisory councils. The Charter therefore is about mission and leadership and it is a foundational document as schools transition into MACS. This is so because Working Together in Mission outlines the collaboration and right relationships that lie at the heart of the capacity for parishes and schools to realise their shared mission. The quality of the relationships between parish priests, principals and the wider school and parish community will in large measure shape what is achieved by schools when it comes to realising their Catholic mission.

As we begin this new journey together we ask for your feedback as we seek the richest possible insights from the many of you who currently lead our schools and parishes and for whom the journey will continue in new forms as schools transition into MACS.

An opportunity to give feedback on the Working Together in Mission Charter is available via the governance email: governance@cem.edu.au.
