The PPC acts as an advisory council that offers a voice in encouraging, guiding, and directing various aspects of the parish. There are currently two at-large positions available starting in the fall. The council meets on the second Monday of each month with the exception of July and August. Meetings are from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. Membership on the council requires a three year commitment.
There are no special skills or qualifications needed to be on the PPC. Rather, anyone who loves St Raphael Church and would like to contribute what they can to make it even better is welcome to apply. If you are interested, submit your name to the Parish Office in the next week or two. In June, all parishioners who have expressed an interest in these two at-large positons will go through a discernment process. It is at that time that candidates learn a little more about the expectations of the at-large member, their own faith identity and how these two factors work together. For additional information please contact Neil Wisker, the Pastoral Council Chairperson at 630-202-3291 or the Parish office at 630-355-4545.
