The Pastoral Council
The Pastoral Council (PC) is a consultative body to the pastor. Its members help actively promote the mission of the parish by identifying parish needs and concerns and providing recommendations through attentive communication with the parishioners and the pastor. The diocese promotes the existence of pastoral councils in parishes. PC members are either elected by the parishioners or appointed by the pastor. Members must be active in parish life, committed to prayer, discernment and dialogue. The council meets once a month.

  3. To worship and celebrate the sacraments
  4. To give Christian witness through works of faith, hope and charity that respond to the real needs of our parish and our neighborhoods.
