Parish Pastoral Council


Since September 2022, the Parish Councils of Greystones and Kilquade work together as one council and collaborate on pastoral area initiatives.

We meet once a month and can be contacted through the parish office.

The Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) is a leadership and consultative group fostering pastoral activities. We work in partnership with Fr. Des Hayden and the other priests to further the mission of Christ and His church in our Pastoral Area.

The PPC is responsible to advise, reflect, and reach conclusions about all things pertaining to pastoral works, to promote them and to propose practical actions and activities.

Parish Pastoral Council members are appointed by the Parish Priest.

The chairperson may be contacted through the Pastoral Area Office 01 287 4025.

See the members below.
