Pastoral Council serves the parish by praying, studying and listening to the pulse of the church and community. It actively participates by visioning, dreaming and planning for the long-range future of the parish and advising the Pastor in various matters.
A Parish Pastoral Council is the “primary visioning body of the parish, this group assists the pastor in:
- Soliciting the wisdom of the parish community on pastoral matters
- Forming a consensus about pastoral planning, which address the needs of the parish.
- Communicating that pastoral vision to the parish as a whole
- Involving parish leadership on implementing the vision.
Christ Our Light's Pastoral Council meets on the third Tuesday of month from September to May.
