Parish Pastoral Council Membership & Purpose

(updated September 14, 2017) 

The Parish Pastoral Council

Purpose: Pastoral Council members are challenged to continual renewal through prayer, study, listening and dialog. In developing priorities and directions for the parish, the Council is the means for giving everyone a voice in parish life. In fostering communication and collaboration, the Council encourages and initiates dialog among parish leaders and members and also, reminds them of the concerns of the larger church. The council is also a vehicle to inform the Bishop of needs and directions that are common to our parish. Matters of fiscal stewardship such as financial, budgets, building and grounds are the concern of the Parish Finance Council.

 

The Parish Pastoral Council is scheduled to meet the fourth Monday of December, March, June and September at 6 pm at SS Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church.  Meeting times and locations may change so please call one of the members if you have anything you wish to have discussed or need to attend.
