Pastoral Council

The Pastoral Council is a representative body of the parishioners of St. Josaphat Cathedral, whose purpose is to promote the mission of the Church. It is the main coordinating and unifying body of the parish and is responsible for overall parish pastoral development, formulating policies and procedures, and developing goals and objectives for presentation at the Annual General Meeting, and reviewing their implementation regularly.

The Pastoral Council fulfills its responsibilities by perceiving a particular pastoral need, studying it with prayer and dialogue, and proposing to the rector (pastor) and the parish a way to respond to that need.
