PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL REVIEWBeing part of a Parish Pastoral Council is a challenging task. Hopefully, there will be times in the life of any Pastoral Council when the members feel they are achieving something; there will be other times when they feel ‘stuck’. This is a normal pattern of growth. The most important thing is to reflect on the experience and to learn from it.
- How is your Parish Pastoral Council?
- Do your meetings feel worthwhile?
- Is it difficult to recruit new members?
