What is the Pastoral Council?
The Pastoral Council is the consultative body of the parish that works in unity with the Pastor. The Council assists in identifying the pastoral needs of the parish and helps to plan and implement parish programs and service. Participants at the Pastoral Council meeting include the Pastor, Pastoral Associate, elected member of the parish as well as appointed members from the parish (parish members each serve a 3 year term). All parishioners are welcome to attend the meetings. Meeting are held the 4th Tuesday of every month, except December & July, at 6:30pm in the Rosary Room.
If you are interested in becoming one of the elected members of the Pastoral Council, please notify one of the Pastoral Council members, the Pastoral Associate or Pastor.
We, the people of St. Matthew, have the mission to go forth, telling the Good News, sharing in the Eucharist, enriching the community through our talents, treasure & time, living lives of prayer & action, transforming the community into the living Body of Christ.
