Purpose: To discern the overall vision and direction of the parish community, and to advise the pastor in any area of interest. Members are either appointed to represent various ministries or discerned by the parish as a whole. Two youth representatives also serve on council. This group meets throughout the year on a set schedule.
“HEALING OUR CHURCH ONE RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS AT A TIME"
– 2019 parish theme adopted by Pastoral Council
Did you notice the new parish goal for 2019? Every year in the fall parish council sets a goal for the new year. It then becomes the headline for page two of the bulletin each week. The goal chosen for the calendar year 2019 is “Healing our church one random act of kindness at a time.” We must admit that 2018 was not a good year for our Catholic Church, and we are certainly in need of healing. Parish Council felt that we could create great healing by doing one random act of kindness a day. Have you ever tried doing a random act of kindness? Try it. It makes everyone feel better, the giver, the recipient and the witnesses. Go ahead, give it a try.
