  Pastoral Council St. Peter’s Basilica - Interior view  
     
 

Vatican II urged active involvement in the life of the Church by emphasizing the principles of collaboration responsibility,
consultation and lay participation.

Pastors know that Christ did not mean for them to shoulder alone the entire mission of the Church themselves. A Pastor
needs to consult with the laity who in turn have the right to express their views and concerns to the Pastor. An important structure to foster this collaboration in the mission is the Parish Pastoral Council.

Code of Canon Law, 536 deals specifically with Parish Pastoral Councils, "A pastoral council is to be established in each parish;
 the pastor presides over it, and through it the Christian faithful along with those who share in the pastoral care of the
parish in virtue of their office give their help in fostering pastoral activity. This pastoral council possesses a consultative vote only and is governed by norms determined by the diocesan bishop.

The St. Agnes Parish Council meets once a month, September through June.  

Current members of the Pastoral Council are

Margarita Barahona
Ryan Clark
June Cosgrove
Peter Eichmann
Karen Fiorentine
Deirdre Lewin
Tom Nofi
Bernie O'Brien
Jackie Rodriguez
Brian Smith
Rob Weidenhoft

Members serve three-year non-concurrent terms.

The Pastoral Council can be contacted through the Parish Office or by e-mail at pastoralcouncil@stagnescathedral.org
