How Does The Parish Pastoral Council Carry Out Its Purpose?

  • By forming an effective group of persons who work in a spirit of prayer and discernment as a sign and witness to the parish community
  • By making recommendations about the pastoral priorities and goals for the parish through pastoral planning
  • By serving as a vehicle of dialogue and communication among the pastor, the parish staff, the various commissions and organizations and the parish membership.
  • By working with the commissions of the parish in a spirit of mutual cooperation for the good of the whole parish community.

In its most effective form, the Parish Pastoral Council is the vehicle by which the Pastor and his Pastoral Staff consider and test their own ideas and proposals with a group that represents the entire Parish community.  It is the official listening post for the local parish community – the Pastor listening to his people and the people listening to their Pastor.
