The Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) is a consultative body that, under the leadership of the pastor, engages parishioners in prayerful reflection about the parish’s mission and ministry . The main objectives of the PPC are supporting existing ministry and understanding the needs, hopes and ideas of the parish and faith community.

“Know well the condition of your flocks, and give attention to your herds.” —Proverbs 27:23
