This council is of the utmost importance in the life of our parish. According to the Pastoral Policy Handbook of the Diocese of Toledo, “The Parish Pastoral Council is to be an effective body providing spiritual leadership in the parish community. The Pastoral Council is a recommending and evaluating body, functioning as a faith community with general operational guidelines determined during the life of the group.” Members are themselves a faith-sharing body whose ministry is pastoral planning for the parish. Council members serve a two-year commitment as an advisory group to the Pastor, with the option to serve a second term.

This council helps our parish provide financial stewardship of all the activities and ministries we support. Members use their business experience, knowledge of the parish and its people, and the religious ideals of the Church to help the pastoral staff make sound financial and business decisions. The team meets monthly to review financial statements, set budgets and financial priorities, and generally provides parish input and advice for the pastoral staff.
