Chairperson: Lida Varone
Members: Katie Cronin, Randy Miczek, Allison Murphy,
Valerie Reside, Greg Tranchina
Purpose of the Pastoral Council
The primary responsibility of the Council is pastoral planning. This process envisions, addresses and evaluates the needs and goals of the parish community in light of Church teaching and the mission of the local and larger Church. This responsibility calls forth the gifts of planning, visioning, empowering and evaluating and requires a belief in the concept of shared leadership among the clergy and the laity.
The council works collaboratively to:
1.) investigate the pastoral reality of matters the Administrator chooses to consult,
2.) reflect upon it,
3.) make a recommendation to the Administrator.
