Pastoral Council

The Pastoral Council regularly reviews and evaluates all the activities through which the parish community strives to fulfill the goals of the Parish Mission Statement.  Working in an advisory capacity, the Council assists our pastor in providing leadership for parish ministries, programs, and activities.  Areas of ministry within the parish generally fall into the following categories: Finance and Administration, Faith Formation, Community Life, Pastoral Care and Wellness, Social Justice, Worship, and Youth Ministry. The Pastoral Council meets, for the most part, on the third Tuesday of every month. In addition, the parish has combined leadership meetings as needed throughout the year.

Should you have any concerns or questions about the topics of discussion or general operations of the council, we want to hear from you. Please feel free to call any member, or call the Parish Office. 

Pastoral Council Membership

Membership on the Pastoral Council consists of the pastor as ex officio member, the parish business administrator, a member of the parish board of trustees, three members-at-large who are elected through a discernment process and serve two-year terms; a representative from each of the standing commissions; as well as two youth members. The Council elects two officers from among its membership: a Chair and a Co-Chair.
