Parish Pastoral Council
According to its Constitution, the Parish Pastoral Council is an advisory and policy making body of elected and nominated parish representatives, presided over by the Parish Priest.
It is a forum for information, needs, proposals and action and provides mutual support for parish workers and priests. It seeks always to enable and empower others so that all may give freely of their gifts without being over-burdened. It calls all to exercise the responsibility of the priesthood received in baptism, so that the work is evenly shared out and not allowed to drift into the hands of the few.
Any Member of the Council must be a baptised practising Catholic aged 16 or over.
It comprises three groups:
Ex officio members:
Fr Des Hanrahan (President) & Brother John McAllister
Gwen Carruthers (Finance),
Tim Carruthers (Buildings and maintenance),
Margaret Crummay (Gift Aid)
