The Parish Pastoral Council reviews and evaluates all the activities of the parish community. An advisory body, the Council assists the Pastor in providing leadership for parish ministries, programs, and activities. Membership on the Council consists of the Pastor and parishioners chosen through a process of discernment. Members usually serve three-year terms. Any member of the parish is strongly encouraged to contact a member of the Pastoral Council with any input, observations, comments, or suggestions regarding the life of the parish.
