Parish Council

"A Parish Council is a group of parishioners that consults with the pastor and assists in guiding the direction of the parish through planning and working with the pastor in overseeing the pastoral activity as the community attempts to fulfill the mission of Jesus Christ....As a consultative body, the Parish Council exists as a wisdom group commissioned to discern, proclaim and make visible the presence and action of the Spirit within the community. By its very nature, it is to provide counsel." Diocese of Peoria, Parish Council Guidelines, February 2014.
