The history of any Congregation is based on individual members and their communities, their generosity of spirit, brought together for a common mission.

Knowledge regarding members is a key factor for the planning of Congregation leadership teams. Demographic modelling assists in planning for the current and future care and welfare of members. It can also assist in planning for financial and property resources as well as the future direction of ministries, and civil and canon law structures.

The modelling takes into consideration the unique circumstances of the Congregation and uses proven mortality statistics for male and female religious congregations. This will include detailed future projections of vocations. This can include discussions with those leading formation, as well as considering the historical reality of vocations in each area within the Congregation. We can provide a detailed membership report or presentation to leadership.
