THE PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL
The Parish Pastoral Council is a representative body whose primary function is to set the vision and plan to make “the life and activity of the parish ever more closely conform to the gospel.” Their focus is on the pastoral aspect of the parish.
The Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) consists of the Parish Priest and a team of parishioners chosen by the parish community. The Councilors’ work collaboratively to build a vital Christian community. A community in which parishioners’ spiritual growth is fostered and their baptismal calls to the mission are discerned and supported.
The Parish Pastoral Council regularly conducts meetings to discuss and take action on ways to bring the people of the parish together spiritually.
The purpose of the PPC is to enrich the quality of parish life and provide opportunities for parishioners to:
- Proclaim the good news of God’s love throughout the world
- Invite more people into the community of disciples
- Encourage the whole community to grow in holiness
- Transform the world until the justice, peace, and love of God’s reign prevail.
