Parish Pastoral Council & Parish Finance Councils

Collaborative Pastoral Council

At the request of the Archdiocese of Boston, all Collaboratives are forming Pastoral Councils (PPC) to assist the pastor in his leadership role with the planning, coordinating, and initiating of all programs and service activities within a Collaborative.

The pastor serves as the Chair of the PPC and the membership is comprised of volunteers who have been nominated by their fellow parishioners. Given the need to redirect our efforts due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the role of the PPC has become increasingly important.

Our Council has been meeting virtually to discuss the needs of the Collaborative community during this difficult time. This group has been meeting in an advisory capacity on important matters facing our Collaborative.

Our Council members are here to help and welcome your questions, input, and concerns. Most importantly, we ask for your prayers as we embark on this important journey responding to the implications of the pandemic on our spiritual community and our communities at large.

The Parish Finance Councils are consultative bodies formed to advise and assist the pastor in his administrative and financial responsibilities in our parishes. Parishioners with expertise in business, finance, accounting, personnel and law are particularly encouraged to offer their services. There are separate Finance Councils for Holy Redeemer and for Immaculate Conception.
