St. Michael Pastoral Council
Our Mission: We are a Roman Catholic community called by God to discipleship through WORSHIP, EDUCATION and SERVICE.
The Pastoral Council in the Code of Canon Law is a structure of consultation and consensus. It is a planning council; not a coordination council. It is where cooperative planning occurs, rather than the coordination of the various tasks required to implement this planning. In a word, the Pastoral Council is a consultative planning group, planning the mission of the parish church with the Pastor. The consultation of the Pastoral Council is essential in the parish's decision-making process, but the Pastoral Council is not the parish's decision-maker. The Pastoral Council should promote every apostolic activity through which the parish discharges its common responsibility of making the Gospel known, of aiding men, women, and children to live holy lives, and of furthering the mission of Christ. For this reason, all boards, commissions, and committees of the parish, except the Finance Council and School Advisory Council, are responsible to the Pastoral Council.
