Parish Pastoral Council
The Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative and advisory body that exists to support the Parish Priest.
The purpose of the Pastoral Council is to enable all parishioners and all parish organisations to participate in the life of the church.
The Pastoral Council will support the Parish Priest in providing spiritual leadership and sound administrative procedures for the parish.
Important and specific aims of the Pastoral Council should be:
to pray that with the grace of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit that they are witnesses to the presence of Christ in the Parish community;
to develop a sense of community in the parish;
to foster growth and maturity and the recognition of the need for change where appropriate; and
to plan for the future of the Parish (e.g. by developing a statement of its mission, vision and objectives)
To this end the Pastoral Council will co-ordinate and promote the activities of the parish and the organisations within the parish in the following key areas:
Liturgy and Worship
Social and Community Activities
Property and Maintenance
Finance and Administration
