Mellifont Parish Pastoral Council is the representative body of our parish and enables parishioners to take part in the spiritual and pastoral development of the parish. It meets once a month between the months of September and June normally on the first Thursday of each month.

It plans to ensure that the faith of the community is nurtured and its mission served. The council highlights the importance of co-responsibility in sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with both priests and people. It also highlights the importance of working together for the faith community.

Prayer, discernment and formation are features of each meeting of the council. Each meeting discusses the mission and the needs of the parish as they arise, and each meeting takes place in a context of prayer which is open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

A number of sub-groups have been developed through previous and current members of the Parish Pastoral Council in conjunction with members of the Faith Community. Examples include: Bethany Bereavement Team, Liturgy Group, India Shillong Team.

The Council and its sub-groups highlight that the Church is the Church of all the baptized where all are invited to play a role.

Examples of the Pastoral Council work includes:
Tullyallen Community Open Day, the Parish Website, raising funds for Shillong India Providence School project.

If you are interested in the Parish Pastoral Council or in any of the sub-groups you see here today please contact any member of the council.
