Pastoral Council

Mungret Crecora Raheen parish formed a Parish Pastoral Council in 2002 as a shared responsibility and collaboration between clergy and laity where both are co-responsible for Church’s existence, direction and action, giving a sense of belonging and living in the light of the Gospel, an integration of faith and life.  It creates a richness in parish life where the gifts of those involved contribute to the well-being of the Parish.

Early support to the Pastoral Council was found in Pastoral of Bishop Donal Murray of June, 2002, entitled “How can we know the Way”.

Members of the Pastoral Council meet on 2nd. Tuesday each Month at 8.00pm. in Millenium Centre (except for  July and August). Members are drawn from many areas of the Parish and discuss reports from Visitation Teams, Liturgy Group, Adoration Group, Youth Ministry, Communications Team, Bereavement Support Group, Baptism Team and other groups as well as reports from Pastoral Area meetings.

An invitation perpetually exists for new members to join the Pastoral Council or any of its sub-groups or to attend and make a submission at any of its meetings.
