Pastoral Council

Meetings are held on the third Monday of each month (except July and August) at 7:00 PM in the Rectory meeting room.  All parishioners are invited to attend.

The purpose of IHM’s Pastoral Council is to assist and advise the Pastor in:

 Identifying pastoral needs and planning programs to address those needs;

  1. Evaluating existing programs and making recommendations for improvement or, at times, termination;
  2. Forming community within itself as a sign of unity for the parish community;
  3. Promoting communication and understanding among parish organizations;
  4. Reviewing the annual budget submitted by the Finance committee and recommending modifications, if appropriate;
  5. Advising the Pastor on any other pastoral needs that may be brought to the Council.
