The Church has borne witness to a great flowering of ministry since the Vatican II. The foremost seedbed for this has certainly been parishioners exercising pastoral leadership in the councils, commissions and committees of parishes large and small across our nation.

In light of this remarkable flowering of pastoral leadership, it is good for us to implement a parish council structure that benefits from the Churchג€™s understanding of how to structure parish governance to best reflect our teachings and meet our needs.

This Handbook is, therefore, a MUST for every pastor, council chair, and parish leader. It is reproducible. Use it as resource to help you shape your Council by the norms of Canon Law, the spirit of Vatican II, and good, old-fashioned common sense.
