Parish Pastoral Council
To LINK, ENCOURAGE and GROW the Parish groups of St John Bosco.
Our aim is to have a broadly diverse group or different age, gender and ethnicity allowing each member to represent the whole parish community.

HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER
IF you are interested in a role on the PPC, or if you wish to nominate a parishioner for a role, please contact the Parish Priest. The Council will prayerfully consider the application and may request the individual attend an information session where role expectations will be discussed.
WHEN DO WE MEET
There will be a minimum of ten monthly meetings of the Pastoral Council each year. The first meeting, generally in January or early February, will be a half day workshop.
To promote the Church's mission to live and communicate the love and values of Christ in the world around us and to work together with parishioners to support their efforts to live as followers of Christ.
The PPC articulated their mission is; "to LEG up the parish groups."
(LEG means to Link - Encourage - Grow)
The Council achieves this by:
supporting, steering and animating the parish groups, and linking them to the parish,
responding to hopes, ideas and concerns of Parishioners,
understanding and creating awareness of activities in the Parish,
setting pastoral goals for the Parish,
and providing and supporting opportunities for Parishioners to grow in their relationship with God and each other.
