The Pastoral Council of Our Lady of Lourdes is a group of parishioners who represent the parish in ensuring that the pastoral mission of the Church Community and its ministries are carried out with dignity and responsibility. It seeks to provide the opportunity for all parishioners to cooperate in that endeavor. Consisting of trustees, heads of ministries, and members of the pastoral staff, it meets monthly with the Pastor. All are free to the Pastor, Father Jim Ferry, to make suggestions for agenda items or to express concerns regarding the ministries functioning in the parish. Please call Father Jim Ferry at the rectory 973.325.0110.
