The Parish Council and Finance Committee

During a parish visit, it is always a pleasure to meet with the Parish Pastoral Council and the members of the Parish Finance committee.

They let me know what is going on in the parish and what activities are important to them.

We talked about a number of things including the Diocesan Stewardship program and how it is taking hold in the parish.

The meeting was very enouraging, with a good number of active and committed parishioners involved.

The Parish Council is an excellent way for parishioners to become involved in the life of their parish. The Council plays a very important role in advising the Pastor and assisting him in this way to lead the parish and set its direction.
