Pastoral Advisory Council

The Pastoral Advisory Council (PAC) is the primary advisory body to the pastor and pastoral team in areas of parish life. The council is made up of the pastor, seven discerned and appointed adult members of the community and a staff liaison.  Through prayer, faith-sharing, dialogue and consensus decision-making, it oversees and periodically updates the parish strategic plan to ensure the vision of the community, identifies and facilitates  key initiatives for pastoral growth and enhances communication between the pastor, staff and community. The PAC works closely with the seven councils in the key areas of parish life to ensure consistency with the current strategic plan.
