The Presbyteral Council

The Presbyteral Council is the principal consultative body mandated by the Code of Canon Law to advise the diocesan bishop in matters of pastoral governance. The Council aids the bishop in the fulfillment of his pastoral ministry by meeting regularly to discuss issues and offering their counsel to the bishop. The council meets quarterly throughout the year.
