The book I recommend for pastoral councils is "Revisioning the Pastoral Council", by Mary Ann Gubish, Susan Jenny and Arlene McGannon from Paulist Press, 2001. You may borrow a copy to review from the Office of Worship.

It identifies the 7 essential elements of parish life and helps a council to evaluate each and build a plan for moving forward.

I have used this with Fr. Wally Packard at St.Joseph, Warren and his new pastoral council (2007). Since it's a workbook and requires some time to go through it as a group, I created a retreat-style PowerPoint workshop to introduce the council to the workbook and the contemporary understanding of the mission of a pastoral council (Contact me if you are interested). The workbook can be used over time to deepen that understanding and give the group direction.
