The Collaborative Pastoral Council is the main advisory committee with whom the pastor and the administrative staff consult on parish-wide matters. The council is composed of parishioners nominated by parishioners, but chosen and appointed by the pastor. Ex officio members include Father Aveni, all Parochial Vicars, and the Permanent Deacon.
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 monthly, based on the availability of the council members. All meetings are open to all members the parish. Contact Father Aveni for the next meeting.
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 Aveni. We encourage you to visit this site and look over the work they are doing.
