In October, 2007, after a bottom-up process that lasted years and involved nearly a thousand people from throughout the diocese, including parishioners, priests, commissions, and staff, Bishop Morlino issued directives for all of the parishes in the Diocese of Madison.
Cluster implementation committees and a diocesan Implementation Commission were formed to address the implementation of these directives. Their work can be seen on the Cluster Implementation Plan page. There are two types of directives:
General Directives - These directives apply to all parishes of the Diocese of Madison, in every cluster. They are listed below.
Cluster Directives - These directives apply to a specific cluster and all the parishes that belong to that cluster. They can be found here: Bishop's Directives.
