Encountering Christ Together

Administrative Councils

Each parish is to have its own Administrative Council. It fulfills all the duties of the finance council and also advises the pastor on other parish specific matters. The work of the Administrative Council in financial matters is not subject to review by the Area Pastoral Council. Cooperation between these councils is essential for a well-functioning Area Faith Community.
