May 6/7, 2017  Pastoral Council Elections!

A pastoral council is a consultative body in dioceses and parishes of the Roman Catholic Church that serves to advise the parish priest about pastoral issues.  The council’s main purpose is to investigate, reflect, and reach conclusions about pastoral matters to recommend to the Pastor as appropriate.
