​​​​​​​"Pastors….also know that they were not ordained by Christ to take upon themselves alone the entire salvific mission of the Church toward the world. On the contrary they understand that it is their noble duty to shepherd the faithful and to recognize their ministries and charisms, so that all according to their proper roles may cooperate in this common undertaking with one mind" (Lumen Gentium, 30).​

Parishes, like the archdiocese, are required under canon law or archdiocesan policy to have consultative groups to assist or provide advice on the sacramental and temporal life of the parish. Under canon law and archdiocesan policy, a parish is required to have a Parish Finance ​Council. In addition, under archdiocesan policy, each parish is required to have a Parish Pastoral Council and a Safeguard the Children Committee.
