The Pastoral Council’s mission is to be an informational, consultative group of parishioners that represent the parish community. The primary concerns of the Council are the spiritual well-being of the parish community, communications throughout the parish community, and providing the pastor with parish resources. The Parish Council is not a governing body, but a group of parishioners whose responsibility it is:
To share, in a consultative manner only, in the decision-making of the parish, and assist in implementation of these decisions.
Determine priorities in the parish according to its needs.
To represent all the people of the Parish.
It also serves as an active resource for the other ministries to help with implementing respective goals and objectives throughout the year.
The Pastoral Council consists of the pastor, its elected and appointed parishioners representing numerous organizations within parish community. The goal is to have all parish organizations represented on the Council in some fashion, to ensure communication channels are kept open throughout the parish.
Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month, excluding July, August, and December. They are scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. end at 8:00 p.m. and are held in the Rectory Meeting Room. Monthly meetings are open and welcomed to ALL PARISHIONERS as observers.
