The Parish Pastoral Council exercises shared responsibility for the pastoral life of the parish under the leadership of the Pastor.
The PPC is made up of interested parishioners who volunteer their spirituality, leadership and other talents to serve our parish community. The purpose of the Parish Pastoral Council is to prayerfully engage the people and the pastor in common reflection about the parish’s missions and ministries, to plan, and to evaluate in light of the Gospel and church teaching. The council has four basic responsibilities: 1) to research the needs, the ideas and the hopes of the faith community; 2) to encourage and support existing ministries; 3) to evaluate the quality of life of the parish faith community; and 4) to plan for the parish’s future by recommending policies, procedures, and programs that will implement its values and fulfill the church’s mission. Volunteer opportunities:
Each year, adult parishioners and teen representatives are invited to join the council. This invitation is extended through the bulletin and the weekend mass announcements.
