The Windsor Heritage Catholic Family of Parishes Pastoral Council is made up of members from Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, St. Alphonsus Parish, St. Angela Parish, the Saint Benedict Tridentine Rite Community and Saint Daniel Comboni Community.

The principal role of the Council is pastoral planning. Pastoral planning is meant to ensure that the mission and vision of the diocese and parish guide the community into the future. Pastoral planning involves:

  • developing a working vision for the parish for the following 3 to 5 years
  • discerning the will of God for this parish community by identifying, assessing and prioritizing pastoral needs
  • setting goals and developing objectives in order to meet those needs
  • recommending courses of action to the pastor or pastoral team members
