Bringing us closer to
the kingdom of God
The spirit of God present in all aspects of parish life
"The Church of the Third Millennium will need to
encourage all the baptised and confirmed to be aware of their active responsibility in
the Church’s life.” Blessed Pope John II
As“Participators in the function of Christ, priest, prophet and king, the laity
have an active part of their own in the life and action of the Church…"
Apostolate of the Laity of Vatican II
Parish Pastoral Councils, like so many other structures, are only useful if they enable
the baptised to engage in the mission of the Church more fruitfully. Unless they give
expression to the needs and mission of the local Church they are but ‘talkshops’.
Diocesan Norms & Constitution for Parish Pastoral Councils
To facilitate the coordination of parish services
Ensuring everyone can participate in the liturgy and parish life
Reviewing the life and activities of the parish so that these are seen to foster
the Mission of the Church.
