The Pastoral Council is the advisory group to the Pastor on the pastoral ministry of the parish. Each parish is to have a council.
The Pastor of the Parish seeks the Council's advise and recommendations on various pastoral questions of the parish. He invites them to participate in a way in his ministry as Pastor and priest.
The Pastoral council does not form policy or manage parish ministries, that is the responsibility of the pastor.
The council generally meets the 2nd Wednesday of every month @ 6pm if the pastor requires.
