Parish Pastoral Council
The Parish Pastoral Council, in keeping with guidelines provided by the Diocese of San Jose, is a consultative body to the pastor who receives from our Bishop the responsibility to be his local presence and to share the shepherding roles of teaching, sanctifying, and governing in our parish.
St. Cyprian’s Pastoral Parish Council seeks to build, strengthen and nourish faith and to empower members by encouraging critical thinking and ownership. All efforts are rooted in the challenge of the gospel and flow from the community’s prayers, gifts and needs as we gather around the Eucharistic table to express and intensify our relationship to one another in the priestly ministry of Jesus Christ.
- To form community as a sign and witness of unity for the larger St. Joseph’s parish community;
- To provide recommendations for parish priorities, directions and policies through pastoral planning;
- To promote communication, understanding, and collaboration among parish organizations and between the parish, the Diocese and the universal Church.
Please Join Us
All are welcome at any meeting, usually the last Monday of the month at 7:00pm in Conference Room #1 located inside the church.
In forming community, council members are challenged to ongoing renewal through prayer, study, listening, and dialogue. In developing priorities and directions for the parish, the council is to become the means of achieving full participation by the whole parish community in its mission by giving all a voice in guiding and directing parish life.
