Archdiocesan Pastoral Council


The Archdiocesan Pastoral Council is the collegial body which represents the entire people of God - clergy, members of religious congregations, and especially the laity.

The Council functions under the authority of the Archbishop on those matters which concern the pastoral work of the Archdiocese. The APC meets regularly, usually quarterly.
