Fifth in a series on the Parish Planning Process

By Linda DeVries
Compass Correspondent

When the six Chilton area parishes in Calumet County linked nine years ago, as Chilton Area Catholic Ministry (CACM), they already had experience with parish collaboration.

In the 1970s, three Salvatorian priests lived in the rectory next to St. Mary in Chilton and shared pastoral care - with each priest assigned two parishes. The parishes had also worked together to form the Chilton Catholic Consolidated School system (now Chilton Area Catholic).

Today, the six parishes - Holy Trinity (Jericho), St. Augustine (Chilton), St. Charles Borromeo (Charlesburg), St. Elizabeth (Kloten), St. Martin (Charlestown), and St. Mary (Chilton) - share a pastoral team, while maintaining their individual parish identities, including their own parish council. There is also a CACM pastoral council, consisting of representatives from each parish based on parish size. They also share sub-committee for worship, family, finances, stewardship and personnel; they are forming a social concerns committee.   Full story ...
