Session 2 - "Good Ministry Practice, Spirituality and Justice: An Introduction to Theory of Change."

Held on April 8, the session was participated by about 106 sisters and partners-in-mission from all the AP units.  As preparation, the units shared their respective plans to implement Integral Ecology using the Integrated Approach to Mission Effectiveness. They followed the integrated process of (i) listening to their own inner wisdom, (ii) entering into the experience of the other and (iii) touching the reality of those at the margins.  We look forward to the overall impact this initiative will have on each unit and the AP region as a whole.

The focus of the session was on Good Ministry Practice - the Theory of Change as a step-by-step guide to assist the units map their own process of change (impact -> outcome -> output -> activities -> input) to achieve their desired goals Integral Ecology.
