OUR MISSION

Leadership Roundtable promotes best practices and accountability in the management, finances, communications, and human resources development of the Catholic Church in the U.S., including greater incorporation of the expertise of the laity.

VISION

Leadership Roundtable is working with Church leaders to institutionalize the following for the Catholic Church in the US.

  • The Church has established public performance standards in key areas of management, finance, human resources and communications;
  • The Church has accepted a variety of internal and external evaluative means to ensure the established performance standards are measured and met;
  • The Church has established a methodology for developing the next generation of leaders, lay and ordained, whereby those selected for key leadership and management positions have the professional skills to succeed

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

  1. Leadership Roundtable follows Pope Francis’ lead in seeking bolder, faster reform in Church management in the US.
  2. Leadership Roundtable seeks to work in collaboration with the U.S. bishops and other Church leaders, promoting dialogue and fostering the full utilization of the unique gifts of lay experts in management, finance, communications, and human resources.
  3. Leadership Roundtable seeks to identify best practices in the areas of management, finance, communications, and human resources that can help address specific needs within the Church. The organization then works together with all the faithful to fulfill the Church’s mission by promoting, adapting, and applying these best practices.
  4. Leadership Roundtable provides an avenue for greater incorporation of the expertise of all the faithful, especially in the areas of church management, finance, communications, and human resources. By virtue of baptism, lay people have not only the right but the duty to offer their gifts and talents to the Church
  5. Leadership Roundtable markets to and offers services to multiple local Churches and institutions.
