Proceeding from a strong sense of community and continually directed by the Holy Spirit, the Pastoral Council will gather the thoughts, feelings and ideas of the parish community; and after study, reflection, deliberation and prayer the council will envision the direction of the parish by:
1. Recommending goals and objectives for the parish;
2. Advising the pastoral staff on the spiritual and pastoral needs of the parish; and
3. Evaluating the progress made toward accomplishing those goals and objectives.
The pastoral council’s role is to listen to the concerns, needs and wishes of the parish and bring these to the attention of the pastor. Through deliberation and prayer they decide on goals and objectives for the parish and counsel the pastor in his duties.
Meetings are held each month, usually on the first Thursday evening. Meetings are closed, but council members are available to hear your thoughts anytime.
Pictures of council members are on display by the rear confessionals.
Members are nominated by fellow parishioners and are chosen at random. They sit for three-year terms.
