Parish Pastoral Council
The primary responsibility of the Pastoral Council is pastoral planning. The Council is a consultative and an advisory body to the Pastor. The Pastor and the Council develop a Pastoral Plan for the parish and monitor the Plan’s progress and implementation by measuring the outcomes established at the time the Plan was developed. Members are appointed by the pastor.
Parish Finance Council
The Finance Council assists the pastor with the management of parish funds. Using the Parish Pastoral Plan as a guide, they do long-range financial planning to help ensure that funds needed to achieve the goals are available. They work with parish ministry leaders to help them create budgets that reflect the goals for their particular ministries. If funds need to be raised, they oversee any development efforts in the parish. They monitor the spending of the funds and provide the Pastoral Council with information needed for their assessment and evaluation responsibilities. Members are appointed by the pastor.
