Archdiocesan Pastoral Council

The Archdiocesan Pastoral Council (APC) is a body of clerics and parishioners formed to consult the archbishop on important pastoral matters.  The 30-member council represents a cross-section of all parishioners similar to a government body.

The Archdiocesan Pastoral Council has been instrumental in facilitating programs such as Together in Faith Phase II. Although final authority on matters decided by the council rests with the archbishop, himself.

The members are nominated by vicars to serve a two-year term.

  • Active, practicing Catholics in a parish
  • Experienced in strategic planning
  • Current or past member of a parish pastoral council or vicariate pastoral council
  • Participated in Together in Faith pastoral planning in their parish or vicariate
