What is the Pastoral Council?

The Pastoral Council is a representative body of the faithful whose focus is on the whole community – its beliefs, its hopes, its joys, its needs, its sorrows, its concerns, its gifts, and its pursuit of the mission of the Church. The Pastoral Council’s task is to give counsel and seek consultation. Members are called to consider pastoral issues for the good and for the future. Their role is to understand, to reflect carefully and to seek consensus. Pastoral Council members are chosen annually through a discernment process to which the whole parish is invited.Members serve staggered three year terms and attend monthly meetings.

How can we help you? 

Contact a Pastoral Council member if you know of an area in the parish that needs attention. We will bring up your questions and concerns at our monthly meeting with the pastor. We will also look for ways to address the issues without straining Saint William’s limited resources.

Do you hear a call to serve? 

Catholics in good standing, who are registered in Saint William’s parish are eligible to join during the discernment process which is held annually in the May/June timeframe.  To learn more about the Pastoral Council, we recommend you contact one of the current members listed below. We also extend a special invitation to ALL parish members, including those not discerning membership, to attend the discernment to provide prayerful support.
