Love God. Live the Eucharist.

Pastoral Council

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.
