In December 2011 the Catholic Bishops’ Conference published a revised and enlarged edition of its 2007 framework document for parish pastoral councils (PPCs) in Ireland. This new edition is based on wide consultation among those actively involved in PPCs, as well as research and reflection in the wider Church context. Questions addressed in the video include: what is a PPC and what difference does it make in a parish? There is also a pointer to how the document treats the ‘consultative status’ of PPCs, and a recommendation of the document to those committed to their initial and ongoing formation.
Living Communion: Vision and Practice for Parish Pastoral Councils in Ireland Today will provide the focus for a workshop at the forthcoming National Pastoral Conference (Sheraton Hotel, Athlone, 13-15 September).
