Parish Pastoral Council 

 

A Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) is a consultative body that represents the parish community with a role to make recommendations to the Pastor of the parish.

A pastoral council has its basis in Canon Law (Canon 536). The bishop of a diocese can establish a pastoral council in each parish that is presided over by the pastor. A parish council is engaged in pastoral care of a parish and is regulated by the norms laid down by the bishop.

 The principal role of a pastoral council is pastoral planning into the future by adhering to the mission and vision of both the diocese and the parish; which involves a three-fold approach: one, to conduct needs analysis and prioritize pastoral requirements; two, to set and develop goals and objectives; and three, to recommend a set of intended actions to achieve those goals and objectives.

A pastoral council has a three-year term, which can be extended to another term.
