Parish Pastoral Council

The purpose of the Parish Pastoral Council is to foster full participation of the entire parish in the life and mission of the parish and of the Universal Church. 2024 CALL FOR PPC NOMINATIONS

The function of the Pastoral Council is to advise the Pastor in pastoral matters including:

  • developing a pastoral plan,
  • recommending policies, procedures, and programs to assist in the implementation of the mission statement and the parish pastoral plan,
  • reviewing and evaluating the effectiveness of existing programs, and
  • serving as a connection to other parish ministries.

The Pastoral Council meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00PM. The following are bullet points from the May 7, 2024, meeting:

  • The PPC is seeking 8-9 new members to take their place on the Council this fall. The call for nominations is available in the bulletin, Flocknote, and the PPC webpage. Nominations may be submitted for yourself or someone else (with their permission) between September 15 and October 13, 2024. Elections will take place on the weekend of October 19/20.
  • With our focus on the Corporal Works of Mercy as a theme for the year, members are exploring collaboration with organizations already providing clothing for the needy such as Face-to-Face and the Miraculous Medal Shrine on Chelten Ave.
  • A summary of ministry activities was presented. It includes the Man-to-Man Retreat scheduled for one Saturday each month; Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on Wednesdays extended to May from 3:30-6:00; the Young Adult Salt & Light Group(ages 22-35); the collaboration and generosity of the Event Committee and Hospitality Committee with their time, feedback, and suggestions; a healing Mass with anointing of the sick scheduled for the last Saturday in May; and a sign-up for liturgical ministries on Pentecost weekend.
  • The PPC will not meet in the summer months and will reconvene in September.
  • PPC members will be available at the church picnic in September to answer any questions about joining the PPC for this Fall.

    If you have any questions or would like to make any suggestions, please feel free to contact the Parish Pastoral Council at Names and emails for individual members are listed on the website.
