What is the Pastoral Council?
The Pastoral Council advises the Pastor on a wide range of
issues including, but not limited to: developing a Pastoral Plan,
providing feedback on ministry outreach, identifying the people
within the parish that can effectively run particular ministries.
The council acts as additional eyes, ears, and communicator
of the Pastor.
The mission of the Pastoral Council is to be an advisory
leadership body, guided by the Holy Spirit and the Gospel,
that assists the Pastor and the Parish Staff in discerning the
needs of the Parish and, by recommending strategic goals
and priorities, guides the Parish in fulfilling its mission as a
The Pastoral Council aims to reflect the diversity of voices
in our community and its members are open to feedback,
ideas, and questions. The Council is made up with members
who are engaged in one of our Parish Commissions. These
Commissions are Prayer and Worship, Faith Formation,
Outreach, School Advisory, and Parish Fellowship. These
commissions meet about once a month and will have
membership on the Pastoral Council which we hope will
meet about every other month.
The time has come to renew the Parish Commissions and the Pastoral Council. If you are interested in helping with
the mission here at St. Pius X Church, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what area of
ministry you may be interested in.
