The Pastoral Council is a leadership group of parish members chosen from and by the parish community. The council consists of members from the parish at-large plus three ex-officio members – the pastor and two trustees. The members-at-large serve a three-year term, with a maximum of two terms. Council members are selected each spring through a process of discernment with three members replaced yearly. The focus of the council is mission, not management.
The purpose of the Pastoral Council is:
to be a representative forum wherein the parish laity and the pastor enter into study and dialogue on matters of pastoral concern.
to serve as a consultative body, advising the pastor on pastoral matters.
to foster ongoing comprehensive planning for the mission and ministries of the parish.
to work collaboratively with the Pastoral Councils of Christ King and St. Bernard on cluster matters.
