PARISH PASTORAL PLANNING COMMITTEE
In response to the Diocesan Guidelines for all parishes of the Diocese of Brooklyn, this commission seeks, through consultation with the parishioners, to discern and respond to the pastoral objectives that enjoy priority in our pastoral life.
Drawing upon the inspiration, reflections, and prayers expressed by the parishioners of St. Joseph Parish throughout our ongoing Pastoral Planning process, the Parish Pastoral Planning Council has composed a Mission Statement and Parish Goals, so that, together, we may build a more vibrant Catholic life.
