Two people from each Commission, along with the Pastor and a representative of the parish staff, make up the Pastoral Council. The Council, therefore, is made up of 12 members. The term of office on the pastoral council is two years, and three years on the commission. That means a person could serve on a commission for one year and then could be selected to serve on the pastoral council, while still remaining on the commission for the next two years.
