Trim & Boardsmill Pastoral Parish Council (PPC)
A little background...
In every parish in the diocese, a Pastoral Council shall be established, if the diocesan Bishop, after consulting with the Council of Presbyters, so decides. – Canon 536, §1
Parish Pastoral Councils respond to the call of the Second Vatican Council for the co-responsible leadership of priests and people in the total mission of the parish. They are structures of participation that have the potential to transform the life of a parish; priests and people work together in the power of the Holy Spirit and renew the church as they coordinate and harness the efforts of parishioners who live and share the Good News of Christ in the local community.
The inaugural Trim & Boardsmill Pastoral Parish Council was elected in September 2010 following an open, democratic election held in the parish in which anyone with an interest in the PPC could put themselves forward for election. In 2014, a new Council was elected.
The PPC meets at least six times per year, discusses the needs of the parish and may recommend changes to aspects of Church daily life locally.
