Parish Pastoral Council

The Guidelines of the Diocese of Charlotte, state that “The Parish Pastoral Council is an institution that brings together lay people, religious, and the ordained, who, together with their pastors, work jointly to build the parish as a living Christian community.” The Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative body, which unites laity and clergy in a community of prayer, leadership, service and pastoral planning.

The Parish Pastoral Council at St. Paul the Apostle is presided over by our Pastor; and the meetings are led by the council chairperson (or vice chairperson in his/her absence).

Its appointed members “possess a consultative vote only” and the Council “is governed by norms determined by the diocesan bishop.” Each member serves a term of three years, staggered, so that certain new members are appointed each year.

The meetings are open to all members of the parish who wish to observe the proceedings. Those parishioners who may wish to submit an agenda item for consideration at a meeting need to submit the item to the current chairperson at least one month in advance.

For a complete list of members of the committee see below.
