The Parish is a community of Christ’s faithful, constituted within a Diocese, whose pastoral care is entrusted to a Parish Priest under the authority of the Bishop (cf. canon 515 §1). It is a community of faith that exists to evangelise, to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, gathered as friends in the Lord.
