PPC Parish Pastoral Council
The Good Shepherd Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) is a consultative, advisory body to the Pastor and the parish.
The PPC provides consultation on matters that the parish confronts in the present moment, when a pastor seeks advice and desires input on matters that affect the life of the parish right here and now. It also serves the need for long-term, strategic planning.
The roles and purpose of the PPC are described in these documents:
Having received recommendations from staff members and parishioners, Father Tom Ferguson appointed the following parishioners to the PPC.

As sharers in the role of Christ as priest, prophet, and king, the laity has their work cut out for them in the life and activity of the Church. Their activity is so necessary within the Church communities that without it the apostolate of the pastors is often unable to achieve its full effectiveness. Strengthened by active participation in the liturgical life of their community, the laity is eager to do their share of the apostolic works of that community. The laity offers their special skills to make the care of souls and the administration of the temporalities of the Church more efficient and effective.
