The Pastoral Council of St. Sebastian Parish is a leadership group of parish members chosen from and by the parish community. The purpose of the pastoral council is:
- To be a representative forum wherein the parish laity and the pastor/parish administrator enter into study and dialogue on matters of pastoral concern.
- To serve as a consultative body, advising the pastor/parish administrator on pastoral matters affecting St. Sebastian Parish.
- To foster ongoing comprehensive planning for the mission and ministries of the parish.
- To work collaboratively with the Pastoral Council of St. Catherine Parish on cluster matters.
Our council is governed by a constitution and bylaws and consists of members from the parish at-large plus three ex-officio members – the parish priest and two trustees. The members-at-large serve a three-year term, with a maximum of two terms. Council member are selected each spring through a process of discernment with three to four members replaced yearly. The focus of our pastoral council is mission, not management. Meetings are held monthly and are open to the public, with dates, times, and agendas published in our bulletin.
