Parish Pastoral Council, Finance Committee & Liturgy Team

Parish Pastoral Council

Our parish is served by a Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) made up of our Parish Priest, Assistant Priests and representative parishioners.

The role of the Council is to provide advice and support to the Parish Priest in the areas of pastoral planning, parish administration and ministry, and parish mission. Elections are held every 3 years.

A member of the PPC serves as a representative on the Parish Finance Committee.

The Council welcomes ideas and issues from parishioners.

The Parish Priest is President of the Parish Pastoral Council, reflecting his role as President of the community, while Council meetings themselves are chaired by a chairperson elected by the members of the PPC. The PPC meets monthly.

Current members of the PPC are:

·       Anthony Seeto (Chair)

·       Bernadette Ho
