The Pastoral Council is a representative body of the greater parish. It is composed of 12 elected representatives and 9 non-elected representatives who are heads of various parish organizations. Pastoral Council functions through various committees including Worship, Education, Youth, Buildings and Grounds, and Finance. Pastoral Council is a forum where parish related ideas, suggestions and concerns are discussed and acted upon. It serves in an advisory capacity to the pastor and takes a leadership role in the on-going development of the parish.
Meetings are held on the second Monday of the month (September – June) at 7:00 p.m. in the Social Center meeting room. Parishioners may attend meetings. They may address the Council during a meeting only with prior approval from the Pastoral Council President. Pastoral Council members welcome contacts from parishioners.
