Pastoral Advisory Council (PAC)

The Pastoral Advisory Council (PAC) advises the Pastor. The PAC represents the people and collective voices of our parishes communities, serves as a source of dialogue, counsel and support for the Pastor and staff and makes recommendations for the improvements to the quality of parish life. The PAC brings the mission of the parishes to life.

Activities and Events

Meetings are normally held the 1st week of every month with the exception of July and December when no meeting is scheduled.  Parishioners (non-PAC members) are invited to attend as observers. PAC members also support other parish activities including after specified Masses to talk with parishioners.

Time Commitment

Members are appointed for a term of three years.  Monthly meetings usually last less than one and a half hours.  Some minimal time between meetings is required depending on member’s role.

Helpful Attributes

PAC members must be confirmed Catholics in good standing, at least 18 years of age, and are able and willing to contribute to the purpose of the Council.  PAC needs members representing the diversity of our parishes with the ability to listen, discern, and provide thoughtful/prayerful advice and input to further the Kingdom of God here at Joint Norwich Catholic Cluster.
