Pastoral Ministers' Association
The Pastoral Ministers Association helps in the integration, collaboration and networking of the various ministries within the Vicariate and provides mutual support and resources for the ministers. This group served as the Vicariate Pastoral Council immediately after Synod ’69 and remained as such until 1998. At that time it became the Pastoral Ministers' Association. All ministers from our Catholic parishes, schools, institutions, religious communities and Chaplaincies are invited and encouraged to participate in our Association meetings.

The Planning Team prepares the agendas and programs scheduled for the year. Members of the Planning Team for 2013-2014 are: Sherry Brandon, Colleen Burke, Peggy Casing,
John Lajiness, Karen Swietlik, Fr. Richard Cavellier, Vicar; Barbara Williams, PMA representative to the Vicariate Pastoral Council.

The PMA meets 4-5 times per year, including the PAV Assemblies held in the fall and spring. Meetings are typically on Tuesday mornings and held at various locations in the PAV.
