The purpose of the Pastoral Council is to provide wisdom and guidance to the pastor in furthering the mission of Christ to the faithful of St. Patrick’s Church and beyond. The Council helps to set short- and long-term goals and objectives for the parish and makes recommendations to the pastor on issues which the Council believes will strengthen the spiritual, formational, social and service life of the parish.
The Pastoral Council is a "representative group" and not a "group of representatives." Council members have a concern for the full parish and school community and focus on the development of the entire parish and not just to one or two projects or organizations.
For membership on the Pastoral Council, the person must be a registered member of St. Patrick’s Church for at least 2 years and have some demonstrated commitment to the parish or school community. The person must be a fully initiated Catholic (baptism, confirmation and Eucharist), with no impediment to full communion (in a Church recognized marriage, if married).
Next Meeting on April 2, 2019 @ 7:00 pm at Parish Hall
