The Pastoral Council consists of the Priest together with a group of parishioners chosen by him. The Pastoral Council’s role is to promote the Church’s mission to live and communicate the love and values of Christ in our world. The Pastoral Council shares in the responsibility for the ongoing life and development of the faith community, working together with parishioners to provide support for their efforts to live as followers of Christ.

Mrs Christine McWilliams (Phone 0451 144 776)

The Parish Finance Council instigates and maintains a financial management system for the parish including a budget. The Council works within parameters of current assets, projected income and expenditure and material parish needs. It monitors and reviews income and expenditure on a regular basis. It makes recommendations to safeguard and maintain parish assets, both real and fixed, and also ensures appropriate health and safety standards are met on parish property. The Council is a consultative body and as such strives to operate in a supportive and collaborative role with the Parish Priest in the interests of the parish and within guidelines laid down by the archdiocese. This in keeping with the co-responsibility of the laity in the mission and ministry of the Church. Members of the Parish Finance Council are appointed by the parish priest. They should be able persons with a good sense of stewardship who have a keen sense of parish interests.

Mr Dolek Thiele (Phone 0419 844 693)

The Pastoral Teams in our Parish Community work to ensure that the pastoral needs of each community are served. Members see that visits to parishioners who are hospitalised, in Nursing Homes or housebound occur, and that opportunities for social gathering of the community are planned.
