In accordance with Canon #536 of the universal Code of Canon Law, "after the diocesan bishop has listened to the presbyteral (priest) council and judges it opportune, a Pastoral Council is to be established in each parish; the pastor presides over it, and through it the Christian faithful, along with those who share in the pastoral care of the parish in virtue of their office, give their help in fostering pastoral activity.”
The Saint Elizabeth Parish Pastoral Council meets 6 times a year. In their responsibility as consultors to the pastor from whom he seeks advise, they prayerfully study and discuss ways in which to grow the spiritual bonds of the parish. By way of a Pastoral Plan they look to the future with goals and objectives that are in keeping with the Mission Statement of Saint Elizabeth Parish.
The current membership of the Saint Elizabeth Parish Pastoral Council includes Debi Bakowski, Tom Bakowski, Jay Black, Carolyn Bourgeois, Wayne Cass, Maureen Crossen, Fr. Dale DeNinno, Dominick DeSalvo, Lisa DiVito, Angie Morini, Janice Niccolai, Gary Remlinger and Richard Urban.
