Bishop Shelton J. Fabre is pleased to announce the founding of a first ever Diocesan Pastoral Council!
The purpose of the Diocesan Pastoral Council is two-fold. First, the Council will, in essence, hold the diocese accountable to the implementation of the strategic plan. Secondly, the Council will serve as an additional consultative body for the Bishop.
The members of the Pastoral Council are:
Pastoral Council Executive Committee
Dr. Glenn Manceaux,
Pastoral Council Members at Large
Dr. Matt Beyer
Nick La Rocca
Dr. Guy Zeringue
"I am deeply grateful to the twelve men and women who have agreed to
serve the people of our diocese on our first ever Pastoral Council. I look forward to benefiting from their personal expertise, as well as their unique 'view from the pew'. The strategic plan is an important gift to our diocese. I look forward to collaborating with the Pastoral Council in the on-going implementation of the plan. I also anticipate having a group of lay voices with whom I can consult regarding matters of pastoral importance. May the Lord bless our work together. May the Lord bless the members of our Pastoral Council. 'Allons!' We're in this together!"
