Parish Council

The Pastoral Council, representing the entire parish, works with the Pastor to assess the needs of, prepare and implement programs for, and coordinate the pastoral life of the Parish Community. The Pastoral Council is an advisory body to the Pastor to ensure that the pastoral and spiritual needs of the Parish, those of the broader community as well as our responsibilities to the universal Church are met through the ministries and programs of the Parish. The Pastoral Council does not advise on financial or temporal matters of the Parish, for this is the purpose of the Finance Council.

If you feel called to this work of leadership in the Parish or would like more information, please contact the Pastor.

Finance Council
