OLP Pastoral Council

Apr 29, 2019 | Posted in News

Pastoral Council would like to announce 2 upcoming vacancies on our board. Both are for 3-year terms. Each position is renewable for an additional 3 years after the first term expires. Parishioners may nominate themselves or other members of our parish.
Nominees should be between the ages of 18 and 118 years old! That’s right; nominees of any age are welcome.

Nominees should also have the following characteristics:

  • Enthusiasm regarding the future of our parish
  • Ability to collaborate with others; openness to other people and their ideas
  • Desire for spiritual growth for themselves and the parish

What is Pastoral Council?

  • It is a visionary body that works in collaboration with the Pastor
  • Council looks to the mission and needs of the parish and plans ways for us to live out the mission and meet our needs
  • Parish council does not make decisions about the daily operations of the parish (other advisory boards are in place for that purpose)

Time Commitment:

  • Meetings are held the fourth Monday of every month except July and December
  • Additionally, there will be a one-day retreat and a planning session
  • If subcommittees are needed, each member will be asked to serve on one
