Our Lady of the Lakes Pastoral Council

Our Lady of the Lakes Pastoral Council

The Pastoral Council provides direction and advice to the Pastor regarding how to best minister to our parishioners. Members must be baptized, practicing Catholic members of our parish, active in our parish worship life and at least 18 years of age. In addition to attending the bi-monthly council meetings, each member is also assigned as a liaison to another parish committee. Each spring, a third of the members are chosen by a discernment process.
