Presbytoral Council Members

“A presbyteral council assists the eparchial bishop by its advice in those things that regard the needs of pastoral activity and the good of the eparchy” (CCEO 264).  Moreover “the eparchial bishop is to hear the presbyteral council in matters of greater importance and he must consult it in cases expressly determined by common law; however, he needs its consent only in cases expressly determined by common law, without prejudice to the right of the patriarch regarding matters of the eparchy he governs to have only to consult the presbyteral council even in these cases. The presbyteral council can never act without the eparchial bishop…” (CCEO 269 #2, #3)
