Parish Pastoral Council

Parish Pastoral Council Meeting Minutes

The purpose of the pastoral council is to offer the pastor the wisdom of the parish community. To do this, it discerns, through prayer and study, how the parish can best collaborate with our bishop to carry out the mission of the Church. Long range planning is an essential part of the work of this consultative body. The tasks of the council are:
• To grow in the awareness of the presence of the Holy Spirit as it operates in the Church.
• To develop a structure that allows for the discovery of pastoral needs and particular gifts which the parish community can address.
• To articulate a vision of the parish’s activity in the future as it carries out the mission of the Church.
• To develop plans to carry out its mission.
• To focus and coordinate the energies of the staff and parish organizations by expressing broad goals for implementation.
