Pastoral Council

What is the Pastoral Council? 

A parish pastoral council is the chief consultative body to the pastor. Consultation is a sharing of wisdom which enables the parish to carry out its mission. Under the direction of our Pastor, the pastoral council discerns issues that impact the lives of parishioners; prays, studies, and discusses those issues; and recommends practical ways of addressing them.

Selecting new leaders to serve the Parish Pastoral Council is an important moment in the life of the community. Pastoral Council members are called upon to reflection the life of the Parish in light of the mission of the Church and to assist the Pastor in bringing greater life and vibrancy to the parish.

If you are interested in being a part of the Pastoral Council, please contact Father John Putnam at
