In September 2013, Cardinal Sean decreed that parish collaboratives are to have a single pastoral council whose members are drawn from each parish comprising it. The single collaborative pastoral council (CPC) replaces the parish pastoral council that each parish would otherwise have. The establishment of our CPC is in keeping with the pastoral plan of the Archdiocese of Boston, Disciples in Mission. Further information about the pastoral plan and its implementation can be found at the Disciples in Mission web site.
The members and officers of our CPC are listed in the bulletin.
The CPC’s primary responsibilities include: (1) working with the pastor to find effective ways to advance the mission of evangelization in our area; (2) supporting the implementation of the Collaborative Pastoral Plan; and (3) enhancing communication between parishioners and pastor.
The CPC normally meets on an agreed schedule between September and June.
