Parish Pastoral Council (PPC)

The Parish Pastoral Council is established to provide advice and assistance to the pastor concerning the pastoral needs of the parish. A Parish Pastoral Council is presided over by the pastor and is to be representative of the faith community, the parish. It is consultative and advisory in nature. The members of the Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) share in the concern for the growth of the parishioners and the parish community and for their spiritual and pastoral welfare. (See Archdiocesan Policy No. 1105)

The Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) is a consultative body whose primary purpose is to work with the Pastor regarding matters pertaining to the pastoral life of the parish. It involves the Parish Team and representative parishioners in assisting in the discernment of the ongoing pastoral needs of the parish and in suggesting strategies helpful in pastoral planning and action devoted to living out the message of the Gospel.
