Eparchial Council

Our Pastoral Council

As its name implies the Eparchial Pastoral Council is to focus on “pastoral” concerns. Pastoral then is concerned with the fulfillment of the Church’s mission in the world, with the care of the people of God, and with the call to conversion to those who have not yet heard the gospel.
