The Pastoral Council (PC) is the chief consultive body to the Pastor. The Pastoral Council brings issues and concerns to the Pastor for discernment and recommends practical ways of addressing them to enable the parish to carry out its mission.
The PC listens to the concerns of the Pastor and the spiritual needs of the parishoners, exercising stewardship with the gifts of the parish. The PC shares responsibility with the Pastor for building up the faith community. Through prayer and discernment, the PC with the Pastor reach decisions through consensus and guidance of the Holy Spirit.
PC members are selected from parishoners who have volunteered to be on the Council and approved by the Pastor. [Canon Law 536].
