At St. Thomas a’Becket parish, the Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) is a consultative body to the pastor with nine at-large parishioners, four Commission representatives (one each from Christian Service, Faith Formation, Stewardship and Worship), one standing committee (Evangelization Committee , which includes our Disability Concerns Committee ) and one Youth Ministry representative. It is the coordinating, supporting, guiding, directing and unifying structure of parish life.

The PPC is a community of disciples who are gifted by the Spirit and called to servant-leadership and ministry. It gathers together the Mission of the Church, the Archdiocesan Goals and the Pastor’s vision into a consensus of parish planning through the establishment of parish goals, a parish plan, operational procedures, and Commission objectives. The PPC sees that these objectives are implemented by the parish staff, commissions, committees, all parish organizations and reviewed annually. They work with the Parish Finance Council.

A list of approved Parish policies is posted on our Church policy page. You can download parish policies and forms.
