Parish Pastoral Council

The Parish Pastoral Council serves as a means by which the Christian faithful of Sacred Heart may make known their needs, especially their spiritual ones, and desires of the pastor (CCL 212 #2) and as a means by which Christian faithful of the parish may manifest to the pastor their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church (CCL 212 #3) Meetings are held monthly except when noted in the bulletin, from September through June and are open to all parishioners. Parishioners may submit an item for consideration to the agenda by contacting any council member.
