The Code of Canon Law [the law that governs the functioning of the Church] allows for the establishment of a Parish Pastoral Council in each Parish. The role of the Council is to “foster the pastoral activity of the Church” (Canon 536 par. 2.)


In other words the role of the Council is to insure that spiritual and educational needs of the Parish are being met. The Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative body – giving suggestions and advice to the Pastor.


The Council meetings are held on the second Monday of each month when there is agenda items. The meetings are announced in the bulletin. All Parish members are welcome to attend the meetings.
