Pastoral Council

A Pastoral Council shall be established in every parish.

The pastor presides over the Pastoral Council. 

The Council is composed of parishioners as well as members of the parish staff.

The Pastoral Council assists in promoting pastoral action in the parish.

—Canon 536 #1

The Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative board of parishioners that strives to discern the movement of the Holy Spirit among God’s people in the parish. This group articulates the mission and direction of the parish, helps set priorities, promotes the spiritual growth of the entire parish, and offers advice in long-term parish planning. All this is in the context of the vision of the diocese and the teaching of the universal church.
