PASTOR'S ADVISORY COUNCILS 

PASTORAL COUNCIL

 

NORMS

If the diocesan bishop judges it opportune after he has heard the presbyteral council, a pastoral council is to be established in each parish, over which the pastor presides and in which the Christian faithful, together with those who share in pastoral care by virtue of their office in the parish, assist in fostering pastoral activity.  A pastoral council possesses a consultative vote only and is governed by the norms established by the diocesan bishop.  Code of Canon Law, Can. 536 §1-§2.

By mandate of the Bishop of Arlington, every pastor in the diocese is to have a functioning Pastoral Council which is to be governed by the principles enunciated in the pastoral letter “A Pastoral Letter on Consultation in the Parish,” dated September 17, 1984.

MEMBERSHIP

Members are appointed by the pastor to serve for terms lasting two years; terms are renewable.

Terms follow the academic year, lasting from September through July, and consist of bi-monthly meetings usually held on the first Thursday of every month.

Terms are staggered, with some members’ terms expiring each year.
