Parish Pastoral Council

Purpose

The Parish Pastoral Council is the primary consultative body to the Pastor of our Parish.  Through the consultative process members of the Parish laity bring their collective knowledge and wisdom into discernment of issues impacting the pastoral life of the Parish.  Through ongoing planning the council advises the pastor on how to advance the mission of the Parish.

There are approximately 20 members of the council who meet each month from September to June.  Members represent the broad spectrum of ministries and interests that make up Mary, Mother of God Parish.  New members are selected through a discernment process by the Pastor in consultation with current members. 

In addition to the Pastoral Council the Parish has 5 mini-councils.  This concept was established in 1993 and prior to that time ministries basically operated independently.  With the introduction of the mini-councils all Parish ministries "belonged" under one of the mini-councils.  Bringing together common ministries under a mini-council allows for common mission statements, planning and actions.  The five mini-councils are: Education, Worship, Community Building, Social Concerns, and Administration.  Members of each mini-council are represented on the Parish Pastoral Council.
