To become part of the Network, the parish must apply to the coordinating team. Here are a few brushstrokes about the conditions of entry into the Network.
Coordinate and accompany
The NETWORK has a Coordinating Team to start it up and to accompany it.
The Network has a responsible person in each Piarist Demarcation who assumes the coordination and accompaniment of the parishes that are in the Network and maintains a fluid relationship with the Coordinating Team of the Network.
An open network
We do not seek a “closed net”, in which only parishes that are assumed by the Order belong, but also parishes carried by Piarists who assume the project of the Order, and even parishes that are not carried by Piarists, but with which we establish a stable institutional relationship. We think, for example, of parishes where there are going forward some missions, parishes that want to take over the project and with which we collaborate in some way, or even pastoral platforms with which it is possible to establish a relationship based on our identity.
Conditions of entry into the Network
Acceptance on the part of the Major Superior and the government team of the Demarcation, which constitutes a guarantee that the parish will remain united to the Network.
COMMUNITY AND PRESENCE
Approval of the religious community and presence team.
The final decision to join the Network belongs to the General Congregation.
Elaboration of the pastoral project of the parish from the six pastoral areas proposed in the present document taking special care of the Educational Pastoral and the development of the Calasanz Movement.
Constitution of the Parish Council and the Economic Council.
Maintain the relationship with other parishes of the Network.
Collaborate in some initiatives that build a shared identity, such as the annual collection for Piarist vocations, the Day of the Calasanz Movement or the celebration of the main Piarist festivities (St. Joseph of Calasanz, St. Pompil, St. Paula, St. Faustino, Virgin of the Pious Schools, etc.).
To make membership in the Network visible through a shared symbolism.
