The Council is a vehicle for the parish members to share in the pastoral mission of Jesus
Christ and the Church in a specific location in the Archdiocese. It does this by developing
Catholic identity, promoting evangelization, and fostering stewardship.

The Council strives to build a community of disciples who recognize their baptismal calls
to lives of holiness, witness and service.

The Council engages in a continual process of pastoral planning, which takes into account
the needs and priorities of its parishioners, the Archdiocese, the broader community, and
the world.
