The Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative body of parishioners who share with the pastor providing vision and direction to the parish. It acknowledges its origins in the Second Vatican Council, is in accord with universal and Archdiocesan church norms, and with St. Robert Bellarmine as the model pledges responsible use of all gifts and resources to meet individual, parish, and community needs. It works with and relies upon various boards, committees, and groups that carry out the work of our parish even as the Parish Pastoral Council provides a conduit for communication with all those organizations. Members are responsible for good communication both on an ongoing basis as circumstances may demand throughout the year. Six elected and six appointed members serve three-year terms and commit to about five hours of work monthly (including two-hour monthly meetings August through June) with additional time for those accepting additional responsibilities as officers.
