(b)   To provide insight and prudent advice concerning the policies, procedures and programs which would assist in the implementation of the parish vision statement and parish pastoral plan;

(c)    To provide an open, honest and respectful forum of communication and dialogue regarding parish affairs among the pastor, associate pastors, permanent deacons, religious, parish staff, and laity;

(d)   To actively encourage by all available means the use of the gifts and talents of all parish members in the life and ministries of the parish;

(e)    To discern the needs and concerns of the parish as a whole and provide recommendations to the Pastor as to the manner in which they may best be addressed;

(f)     To continue to develop, maintain and review the vision statement of the Parish and to evaluate the manner in which it is being effectuated in the Parish;

(g)    To participate, through active cooperation in regional and archdiocesan collegial bodies and events, in the total life and mission of the Church of the Archdiocese of Baltimore;
