The Coun­cil of Priests, or Pres­byteral Coun­cil, meets bi-monthly. The twelve (12) Coun­cilors serve a 5-year term and are eli­gi­ble for re-election or re-appointment. The Coun­cil is advi­sory to the Bishop on all issues per­tain­ing to parish life and on major issues per­tain­ing to the oper­a­tion of the diocese. The Coun­cil func­tions as a “Sen­ate of the Bishop.” At each meet­ing the Bishop and the mem­bers spend about an hour in gen­eral dis­cus­sion before begin­ning the sched­uled agenda. There is a free flow of ideas and hon­est exchange on the pas­toral issues of the diocese.Major con­cerns are com­mu­ni­cated between the Pres­byteral Coun­cil and the rest of the priests in regional Dean­ery Meet­ings. The Bishop meets with the Deans two weeks after the Pres­byteral Coun­cil Meet­ings so that the work of the Coun­cil can be com­mu­ni­cated to the Deans for their meet­ings with the priests in the eight regions.
