The Pastoral Council’s mission is to assist in the development of goals and objectives for the future of the parish. The Council, a representative body of five members, addresses this mission by advising on matters of parish policy, planning, and other items at the request of the Pastor including long term planning and priorities which affect the parish.
As your Pastoral Council, we assist our Pastor in the following ways:
Develop goals and objectives for the parish
Implement a plan and develop progress reports
Develop parish policies that affect the parish community
Identify for discussion and remedy (if necessary) areas of concern and success that affect the parish community
Serve as a sounding board for decisions that affect the parish community
Develop education and formation opportunities
Responsibly safeguard the use of parish financial and physical assets, and human resources
Remain actively involved in the parish community to build a community of faith
Live as a witness in a life lived in faithfulness to the teachings of the Catholic Church
We are here to serve, so please reach out with any comments or suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
