Pastoral Councils


The Pastoral Council exists for the purpose of establishing and nurturing a vision for the parishes of CCNCC as a Christian community of faith. This vision strives for the transformation of people, for the identification of ministry needs, and for responsible pastoral planning for the CCNCC community. This vision is rooted in the parish mission statement and the mission of Christ who commanded all the baptized to "Go into the whole world and proclaim the good news to all creation" (Mark: 16-15).

The Pastoral Council meets monthly.  We’re your Pastoral Council so please reach out to us with a question, suggestion, or feedback- we are here to serve the parishes and parishioners of CCNCC.  You may contact your Parish's Pastoral Council by clicking on the links below.

Prayer for Pastoral Council

You have called us to be the servants of your servants, our brothers, and sisters in the parish. We meet here as their representatives and so we ask for the grace of your guidance to help us truly represent them and not simply ourselves. May the needs of our parish and the common good of all be our concern, and above all, may Your will in these matters be our will. Help us who serve in leadership to remember that all of our concerns are aimed at the spiritual transformation of our parish community. And may the Holy Spirit who inspired the Pentecost meeting of the Apostles visit and grant us the light of divine wisdom. We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ.
