Pastoral Council

The role of the Pastoral Parish Council is to promote the Church’s mission to live and communicate the love and values of Christ in the world around us. The Council shares in the responsibility for the ongoing life and development of our parish community to provide support for their faith and the mission of the church.

It involves listening and studying the life and activity of the parish to:

  • Research and identify needs, ideas, hopes and feedback of parishioners
  • Encourage and support the continuing good work of existing groups within our parish
  • Develop, implement, review and improve pastoral programs
  • Set short-term and long-term pastoral goals for our parish community within our Archdiocesan priorities
  • Provide support for our Priest, working collaboratively with him and with each other.

The minimum number of members is eight (8), exluding the Parish priest. The term of membership is two years. The Pastoral Council reports to the parish community annually at the AGM.
