Pastoral Council

Pastoral Council

The Pastoral Council at Our Lady of Lourdes is an appointed group of parishioners who serve as advisers and consultants to our Pastor/Administrator.  One of the primary roles of each Council member is to attempt to represent the people of our parish in formal discussions with our Pastor/Administrator regarding issues that will help us to fulfill our Parish Mission Statement and Parish goals.
