Pastoral Council

The Pastoral Council is a consultative body convened to foster full participation and collaboration of the entire parish in the life and mission of the parish and of the Universal Church. This is accomplished by:
• Planning, developing and recommending parish pastoral plans
• Reviewing and evaluating the effectiveness of existing parish programs
• Reflecting on Archdiocesan pastoral priorities and recommending how they can be implemented in our parish
• Recommending policies, procedures and programs to assist in the implementation of our mission statement and parish pastoral plan
• Informing the pastor of the needs, concerns, gifts and resources of our parish

The pastor presides over the Council which is composed of elected and appointed parishioners and parish staff members appointed by the pastor.
