The Collaborative Pastoral Council is the main advisory committee with whom the pastor and the administrative staff consult on Collaborative-wide matters. The council is composed of nine parishioners (3 from each Parish) nominated by parishioners, but chosen and appointed by the pastor. Ex officio members include Father Shawn, all Parochial Vicars, all Permanent Deacons, and our Pastoral Associate.
Under the guidance of the Pastor, the Council explores the spiritual and faith development of Parish life. It also consults to the pastor by making evaluations and recommendations for planning and communication.
Collaborative Pastoral Council meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of each month at St. Andrew. All meetings are open to all members of all 3 Parishes.
The Collaborative Pastoral Council is linked to the Archdiocese of Boston via the Archdiocesan Pastoral Council. The Archdiocesan Pastoral Council assists the Cardinal Seán in the same manner as the Pastoral Council to Father Shawn. We encourage you to visit this site and look over the work they are doing.
