Pastoral Council
Pastoral councils were set up after Vatican II in order to encourage increased lay involvement in the Church. As outlined by Archbishop Diarmuid Martin the mission of the pastoralcouncils was above all that of animation and encouraging others to be more active in their life of faith.

The Donnybrook Parish Council was initiated in 2006 with monthly meetings. In addition officers of the council have attended deanery meetings at which an exchange of suggestions, concerns, ambitions and disappointments were expressed. Some members have attended specialised lectures and courses, most recently in the important area of Child Safeguarding.

It is clearly recognised that the council must relate to all aspects and ages in the parish especially the young. The strong attendance and contribution of the previous and present council members is a source of great satisfaction and assurance of the future contribution of the Pastoral Council to the life and invigoration of our parish.
