Description of the Pastoral Advisory Council: This is an advisory body that meets monthly to assist the pastor. Council members, who serve a three-year term, provide consultation through prayer, study, dialogue, discipline and discernment under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Mindful of our Parish Mission Statement, we actively listen to the needs of parishioners and share our wisdom at Council meetings. Discussions include but are not limited to Liturgy & Spirituality, Lifelong Faith Formation and Adult Education, Pastoral Care and Hospitality, Social Initiatives & Outreach, Facilities and Finances, and Parish Governance & Communications. The members help the Pastor decide the future needs of the parish. Final decisions are reserved for the Pastor.
