THE PASTORAL COUNCIL
The Pastoral Council advises and assists the pastor in matters relating to parishioner involvement within the parish and the community at large. The Pastoral Council elicits the concerns of parishioners and responds, inclusively and collaboratively, to both the expressed desires and observed needs of the General Assembly of all parishioners. In considering the fulfillment of its mission, the Pastoral Council is guided by traditional Christian charity as expressed in the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
