A consultative body presided over by the Pastor whose role is to advise and assist the Pastor in areas of pastoral concerns. The Council is comprised of parishioners’ representative of the entire parish, recognizing and reflecting the parish’s rich diversity.
The Pastoral Council develops and maintains a Strategic Pastoral Plan that reflects the identity and mission of the parish in light of the Gospel, Church teachings and the specific realities and needs of the parish. The Parish Pastoral Council is to cooperate with parish committees which address such areas of parish life as worship, spirituality, community, evangelization, education, and service.

In May 2019, The Catholic Leadership Institute assisted us with
Focus Groups to gain further insight into our DMI Results.
Pastoral Council is formulating Pastoral Priorities that will enable us to
discern and plan how God is guiding us now and into the future.
The Key Strengths, Areas of Opportunity, and the input/feedback from
the Parish Focus Groups will be an integral part of this plan.
