AMPJP streamlines its strategic direction
The Association of Ministerial Public Juridic Persons (AMPJP) has recently adopted a new strategic direction 2020-2023.
The two principal objectives of the AMPJP’s new strategic direction are:
Over the past six months, the AMPJP has reflected upon its unique identity and mission in the Church. The Association’s primary focus is on the 11 Ministerial PJPs. It is these Ministerial PJPs [stewarded by some 70 Canonical Stewards] who have responsibility for many of the Church’s education, health, aged care and other ministries.
The features of Ministerial PJPs include:
Eva Skira, Chair of the Council of the Association of MPJPs (AMPJP) said:
“While excellence in Ministerial PJP governance has always been one of the Association’s previous strategies, it will now have a sharper focus.”
“We have confidence that our diverse organisations are well-governed. A main element of the priority is to help others to better understand the nature of governance in the context of Ministerial PJPs.”
Since its formation in 2016, the Association has increasingly engaged with the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference, Catholic Religious Australia and other key Church agencies. The AMPJP sees the COVID-19 crisis and its aftermath as exacerbating a number of challenges that faced Australian society and the Catholic Church.
Eva Skira also said:
“After 4 years, AMPJP members have grown in appreciation of their different approaches and have a positive basis for working together and with others in the Church to bring Christ’s love to our world.”
