PARISH COUNCIL MEMBERS
The Parish Pastoral Council serves as an advisory committee to the Pastor. The members of the council, through prayerful reflection, work toward making recommendations to the Pastor. The committee also envisions plans and suggests directions, which might enhance the quality of parish life and promote its vitality. Members represent the diversity of the parish community and therefore provide insight into the various needs and issues of the different groups that make up one parish community.

Saint Philip Neri Parish Council Members-at-Large welcome any questions or comments you may have.
Why doesn't the parish welcome newlywed couples and newborns in the Parish Bulletin?
The policy of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia states that the names of children not be published publically for the general public. Unfortunately all parishes in the Archdiocese do not adhere to this policy. For this reason you will not find children's names published for Baptisms, First Communion, and Confirmation. Permission to publish the names of children requires the agreement of parents or guardians. Many times this permission is not given by parents or guardians; it is the policy here at St. Philip Neri since we cannot publish all names it would not be proper to publish only some names. To publish an individual's name requires permission from the individual, parent or guardian.
When marriage takes place here at St. Philip Neri, permission would also be needed to publically congratulate couples. In years past, for three weeks prior to a wedding, the banns of marriage were published. The banns were not a congratulation for the marriage, but really asking parishioners or the public if they knew if the couple to be married had a previous bond (married before). The banns of marriage are no longer published a policy no longer permitted. Today's church records give this needed information.

Church Law mandates that each parish have a Finance Council (or Committee) to assist the Pastor in a consultative capacity with respect to the material goods and resources of the parish. The Finance Committee of our parish is involved in the preparation of annual operating budgets and reports, review of proposed capital projects and expenditures, and the study of the long-range financial and physical needs of the parish. In addition, other parishioners with particular expertise are called upon from time to time to assist the Pastor and Committee on specific projects.
