The Parish Liaison Network (PLN) is a network of leaders from parishes throughout the Diocese of Arlington, working closely with staff and volunteers from Catholic Charities to best minister to the poor and suffering among us.

  • Approved by the pastor at each parish. The PLN acts as the link between the parish and Catholic Charities; and between parish and the other parishes of the diocese. 
  • By holding quarterly training and networking meetings at parishes.  At each meeting a formation talk is given by one of the diocesan priests, and representatives have an opportunity to meet other Catholics interested in helping the poor.
  • By coordinating a diocese-wide response to urgent needs in the community.
  • By publishing a monthly PLN email newsletter with the latest news, information best practices, tips and more …
  • By building and maintaining a comprehensive database with contact information for all social services ministries for the participating parishes in the diocese.
