Parish Pastoral Council

Parish Pastoral Council

Parish Pastoral Council Nominations
One sign of an actively engaged parish is its ability on a continuous basis to raise up men and women willing to provide leadership for the community. Leadership does have a cost of both time and energy. It is therefore important that leadership continue to rotate every few years. This allows for new ideas and energy to infuse the parish.

Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative body that helps the Archbishop and his designee, the pastor, to keep a finger on the pulse of the life of the parish. Council members are, first and foremost, spiritual leaders of the parish for, from our faith, all other activities flow. They also consult on issues of everyday business and physical plant management for the parish.

Parish Pastoral Council nominations are now being accepted for both Saints Peter and Paul and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Parishes. Beginning this year and every year from this point forward, Parish Pastoral Council will replace 3-4 positions through the nominations process. On Pentecost, the birthday of the Church, we will select randomly through the power of the Holy Spirit those to join the respective councils.

Nominees must meet the following requirements:
1. Must be an active, registered member of the parish.
2. Attends Mass every Sunday (barring illness)

5. Willing to serve a 3 year term that meets about 9-10 times a year plus attending other ministry
meetings when necessary.

Whom should you nominate? Think about the activities you are involved in and then look to see if anyone from your ministry is represented. If not, think about nominating someone or yourself.
