St Joseph’s Pastoral Council


The Pastoral Council comprises (currently) nine lay members (four women and five men) plus Fr John and Dcn Hugh.

It meets approximately once a month and  takes a strategic overview of all aspects of parish life.

Within the Council, different members have oversight of different areas of parish life, on which they report and update the Council. [For example: we have ‘reps’ for Safeguarding, Liturgy, Links with Foodbank, Fellowship of Churches, our primary & secondary school, EST, among others.]
