Pre-Council meetings are essential to a delegate’s preparation for Council. Many details of the diocesan budget, which Council is responsible for establishing, will be presented at Pre-Council meetings and not be repeated on the floor of Council. Several other important pieces of information that will be taken up at Council will be distributed at Pre-Council meetings.
