Purpose of St. John's Parish Pastoral Council
As a body of representatives of the people of God in this parish community, the Parish Pastoral Council seeks:
To foster the unity of the parish;
To assess adequately, under the leadership of the pastor and the needs of the whole parish and its individual members, and to develop and implement a unified program of renewal which promotes the common good of the parish;
To coordinate all parish activiites in a manner that will best serve the interests of the parish, the student population, and the community as a whole; and
To associate the clergy and laity more closely in the saving mission of Christ.
