Meet the Parish Pastoral Council

Catholic pastors consult pastoral councils in order to be better leaders. In brief, the work of the pastoral council is pastoral planning. Although pastors preside, councillors may serve as chairpersons and facilitators, especially if they are good at helping the flow of discussion and the achievement of consensus. The goal is to help councillors make present the wisdom of the community.
