Pastoral Relations

The Pastoral Relations Commission meets monthly, usually on the 2nd Tuesday* to make decisions on behalf of the Prairie to Pine Regional Council related to new pastoral relationships, requests for changes in pastoral relationships, support of communities of faith in transition through the appointment of pastoral charge supervisors and the appointment of liaisons to assist them in the needs assessment and search processes.

* All documents/matters for the agenda must be received by the Pastoral Relations Minister by noon on the Thursday before the meeting.
