Pastoral Council

The purpose of the Pastoral Council is to further the work of the Church by fostering the spiritual growth of parishioners and leading them to respond actively to their universal call to mission.

There is a strong sense of community and lay involvement in the administrative and pastoral life of our Parish while leadership is provided by members of the Parish Pastoral Council.

The Pastoral Council seeks to build positive relationships with the entire parish and beyond, connecting individuals and groups so we become a place recognised as welcoming and progressive. The Pastoral Council recognises that Church is not something just to attend but more a reflection of what we are as a Parish.

The Pastoral Council meets the 4th Wednesday of each month (December/January excluded). A summary of the meeting is published in the weekly bulletin each month.
