New Note:

Congratulations to the newly installed Christ Our Hope Pastoral Council for 2016.

Monday, September 12, 2016 after the 7:00 p.m. Mass in the Sr. Thea Bowman Hall.


The Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative body within the parish from which the pastor seeks advice and counsel in the planning and administration of the parish. The Pastoral Council is not a legislative body; it is an advisor to the pastor and is charged with recognizing parish needs, setting priorities, and empowering people to participate in satisfying these needs according to the mission of our parish. The work of the pastoral council is to consider, plan and recommend ways for the parish to accomplish the mission of Christ. The pastoral council is a strategic organ in the parish that keeps the parish focused on this divine purpose – loving God, loving God's people, doing God's will and leading others to God through Christ. We meet August through June on the second Monday of the month after the 7:00 pm Mass. All meetings are open to the congregation, except when designated as a private meeting for members only.
