The history of parish pastoral councils in the Diocese of Pittsburgh began shortly after the Second Vatican Council, with an attempt to engage laity in some form of collaboration in building up the Body of Christ. In many places, this resulted in a consultative body known as a parish council. The role of the parish council varied, but in most cases the council served to coordinate ministries and lead activities. Gradually, some of these groups evolved into pastoral councils, looking at the mission of the parish and planning ways to initiate or strengthen whatever was needed to fulfill that mission.



The Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) works as co-workers and advisers to the pastor and staff, active role and voice in the parish, assesses the current and future needs of the parishioners, advise the pastor and staff accordingly, and develop long- and short-term goals.

The Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) members are selected through a process of nomination, appointment and volunteer’s from the parish at large and with a prayerful discernment by current council members.

The Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) carefully utilizes skills of listening, assessment and planning to assist in establishing an ongoing pastoral plan that is implemented by the pastoral staff, parish committees, volunteers, organizations and parishioners and evaluates the outcome of same.

Accountability to Parish:
The Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) is first accountable to the Pastor and to the parish at large. All actions of the Pastoral Council are transparent and will be made known to all.

St. Titus Parish Pastoral Council e-Mail: 

"In order to increase our parish experience, and to increase the quality of our service to our community, the Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) now has an E-mail address that affords parishioners the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback. The address can also be found on the front page of the parish bulletin.


We welcome all comments - including constructive criticism and concerns - and we hope that this tool will aid in the growth of our parish family. All inquiries will be addressed by the council or directed to the person or organization in charge."
