It's important first to understand your role and responsibilities on parish council so that all your gifts and talents will be put to the very best use.The Archdiocese of Edmonton has developed a continuing program of formation and support for all Parish Pastoral Councils (PPCs) called Together in Ministry. It consists of workshops delivered throughout the Archdiocese, with guidance and reference provided by the Parish Pastoral Council Handbook and the Together in Ministry Manual.
The Office of the Lay Apostolate is here to support you and your Parish Pastoral Council.
