Parish Council

The purpose of the Parish Pastoral Council is to foster full  participation of all parishioners in the life and mission of the parish,  the Diocese and the Church Universal.  The parish faith community participates in this mission by growing in holiness; by worshipping  God in Word and Sacrament; and by fostering Christian community through concretely serving those in need, especially the poor.

The Parish Council exists to identify the needs of the parish, to be a link between all the parishioners with the pastoral staff, and to be a means of ensuring that parish needs are met. The work of the Parish Council is based upon the principle that the most effective parish community is one where the greatest number of parishioners have responsibility for the most areas of parish life.
