Pastoral Council

A Parish Pastoral Council was formally established in the parish of Quin-Clooney-Maghera in June 2006.  This is in line with recommendations from the Vatican and the Irish Catholic Hierarchy and reflects changes taking place in the Church worldwide.  The PPC represents a partnership of priests and laypeople sharing responsibility for the pastoral care of the parish and planning for its future.  It exists to provide service and support to individuals and families, and to affirm and encourage other parish groups in their respective ministries.  It is not ‘in charge’ of the parish.  Rather, it will be at the service of the parish taking charge of itself.  Currently, there are 15 laypeople on the PPC and these will obtain training to assist them in their work.  According to a Constitution that the PPC has adopted, each layperson must retire after three years, to make way for new volunteers.
