The Parish Pastoral Council is a key advisory body to the Pastor regarding the spiritual life and health of the parish. Council members are asked to pray for the people and ministries of the Parish; promote biblical spirituality within the communities and parish families; help develop a pastoral plan for the growth and development of the parish community and meet monthly.
Council members usually serve a three-year term and the Pastoral Council Chairman serves as the Secretary of the Parish's corporate entity. When there are openings on the Council, nominations are accepted and reviewed by the Pastor and Council members.
Parish Pastoral Council members must be registered in the Parish, Catholics in good standing with the Church, attend Mass regularly, and be available for monthly meetings as well as other projects that the Council may undertake.
