The Council is a consultative body to the pastor. The Council structure facilitates cooperation between the pastor, staff and parishioners to define and carry out the parish mission, which is connected to the mission of the universal church and to that of Christ himself.

The Council carries out its purpose by setting a vision for the parish community and then giving direction to the parish community through discerning God's will for the community, assessing needs, developing priorities and engaging in short and long term planning.
