Parish Pastoral Council

The Pastoral Council is a consultative body, pastoral in nature that strives to discern the movement of the Holy Spirit among God’s people in the parish. It investigates, under the authority of the pastor, all those things which pertain to pastoral works – to ponder them, and to propose practical conclusions about them.

The Pastoral Council assists the pastor in his leadership role of planning, organizing, initiating, promoting, coordinating, and reviewing the various missions of the parish, which are: evangelization, education, pastoral ministry, liturgy, social concerns and outreach, and ecumenism and interfaith concerns.General membership positions are filled through election by the entire parish.
