Parish Pastoral Council

We are a consultative body convened by the pastor and from whom the pastor seeks advice and counsel in planning for parish vitality. The counsel prayerfully discerns parish needs and priorities and empowers parishioners to participate in the Mission of Christ.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

We combine intercessory prayer with knitting/crocheting. The group meets monthly to pray for those for whom they are making shawls. Much work is done individually, outside of meetings - if you cannot attend meetings, please craft at home and send in completed shawls. Shawls are given at healing Masses or by request at any time.
