Parish Life Director is a professional minister who is entrusted by the Bishop with a “participation in the exercise of the pastoral care of the parish.” (c.517.2) The Parish Life Director is appointed by the Bishop and is responsible to the Priest Moderator. In collaboration with a Priest Moderator and a Sacramental Minister, the Parish Life Director has the responsibility of overseeing the pastoral care and organizational leadership for a parish community without a pastor. The Parish Life Director coordinates the ministries of the parish, is sensitive to the various needs of the community, and is to be a unifying presence within the faith community. The Parish Life Director enables and empowers the community to be a sign of the Kingdom of God.
