I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

The members of the council are the officers of various Church organization. It starts with a Prayer then the agendas for the meeting is read. Every issues concerning the Parish Church is discussed, some are very trivial and some has major significance.

Every topic that is discussed is jotted down in the minutes of the meeting by the secretary and she also takes care of the attendance of all participants.
Pastoral meeting is very important because it is here where the plans for the Church are hatched in advance. It is also an opportunity for the officers of various Church organization to be up close and personal with our Parish Priest, there we discuss with him our thoughts on how we can contribute for the advancement of our parish.
