Welcome to

Parish Pastoral Council

Message from Father Robert: Welcome to our webpage for our Saint Joachim Parish Pastoral Council (PPC). The underlying reason for a pastoral council is that the wisdom of the larger community contributes to discernment and planning. A pastor’s need for consultation is an expression of a pastor’s honesty and humility. I need a diversity of viewpoints from people who can also work toward consensus. A pastor consults by asking the parish pastoral council to do three things: 1) study a particular matter, 2) reflect about it, 3) recommend conclusions. Please scroll down to see the PPC members.
