Parish of Balbriggan

Parish Pastoral Council

We have been blessed to have a Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) in Balbriggan since they were first introduced by Archbishop Martin in 2007. We are grateful to those who have served on the various Councils since that time and we continue to build on the strong foundations which have been set for us.

The role of the PPC is to discern in a prayerful way the needs of our Parishioners and to respond to those needs in light of the Gospel.  The PPC encourages members of the Parish Community to take a more active role in the life of the Parish and to deepen their understanding of their Christian faith.

For our current Council, there was a public process whereby parishioners were invited to nominate candidates. The diversity of our Parish Community was an important consideration in discerning PPC members.

 

The current members of the Council are:

President:     Fr. Eugene Taaffe PP (ex officio)

Chairperson:     Geraldine O’Hagan

Edel Kenny

Joanna Kossykowska

Orflaith Gaughan

Jane Mehigan

Sean McEvoy

Brian Oates

Janice O’Rourke

Niamh Morris, Pastoral Worker (ex officio)
