Pastoral Council members may either be appointed by the pastor or determined through the process of discernment. All candidates for membership on the Parish Pastoral Council must be baptized and confirmed Catholics and be registered and active members of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Community. Council members serve a term of three years from their discernment.
All council members must regularly attend meetings of the Council, fully participate in and contribute to Council deliberations, share information regarding pastoral needs of the Parish, help in developing Parish Pastoral plans, goals, and objectives, and communicate effectively with the entire Parish. Pastoral Council by-laws covering membership and leadership terms are available from the Parish Office or from any Council member.
