How to Be a (More) Pastoral Parish in the Modern World

Many new terms are being used in parish life today, such as synodality, accompaniment, discernment, and even pastoral theology itself, to name a few. This presentation will help you define, decode, and learn how to enact the new vocabulary being used today in parish ministry. We’ll do this in plain English—and we’ll send you home with practical tools to help you share it with your colleagues at your own parish.

Join us for the third and final presentation of this series with Bill Huebsch.



Wisdom And Wonder

"A special time set aside to exchange information & ideas with peers in pastoral ministry"

March 7, 2024

3:00 - 4:00 p.m. via Zoom


Drop in and gather with other pastoral ministers from your desk or home to check-in, share ideas, gain insight and knowledge about a variety of topics.  It seems like weekly there’s a new wonder to tackle! Here we will share about best practices, protocols, prayer, and gain camaraderie and encouragement, etc.

We meet for an hour on Zoom, to check-in, pray, discuss & share, timely issues like: homebound ministry, formation of volunteers, etc.


RSVP to Barb at to receive this month’s Zoom link.


We hope you can join us! If you know an active pastoral minister who has not yet joined APM--invite them to do so, as this is an excellent benefit for them.

About Us

The Association of Pastoral Ministers provides support, advocacy and ongoing formation to our members who are professional lay ecclesial ministers committed to pastorally serving the human and spiritual needs in the Church.


The role of our members is one of leadership in calling people forth to ministry and in modeling new ways of ministering.


We are dedicated to nurturing relationships with individuals and organizations within the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and beyond its boundaries. We are concerned with broader relationships and responsibilities. We recognize the value of dialogue within the Church for human and spiritual growth for all.


A community of discernment, we seek to discover and implement ways that will strengthen and improve the quality of our ministry, modeled after the life and teachings of Jesus.
