good shepherd: Parish Pastoral Council

“The Parish is where the Church lives,” according to the American Bishops.

“Parishes are communities of faith, of action, and of hope. They are where the gospel is proclaimed and celebrated, where believers are formed and sent to renew the earth.” [Communities of Salt and Light: Reflections on the Social mission of the Parish.]

Our Ministry

Bishop Bambera reminds us that “the parish is, first, a people. It is a people called together by God. It is a people empowered by the Spirit to make increasingly true and obvious their response to God through Christ.” The parish has only one purpose – to continue the mission of Jesus Christ.

Our Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative body made up of 12 members of the parish community, who work with the Pastor to to guide and determine the direction of the parish.

Role of Parish Pastoral Council

The role of the Parish Pastoral Council is to plan for and oversee the apostolic works of the parish which fulfill the mission and ministry of the larger Church and are rooted in the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ.
