Our Lady of the Snows - Parish Pastoral Council

Parish Pastoral Councils within the Diocese of Brooklyn are periodically invited to reflect upon their ministry, the life of the parish and the progress made in addressing the goals of the parish's pastoral plan. This evaluation is also a time to update the parish's plan to reflect more closely the goals that the parish will seek to live out in the coming year.
