Our Pastoral Council was constituted in 1993 for the purpose of advising and consulting with our pastor to formulate and develop parish initiatives in areas of need, and to evaluate and improve existing programs as well as to support and promote participation on behalf of the whole community.

Pastoral Council

The membership of the Pastoral Council is expected to representa wide range of Concerns and Organizations, primarily Worship, Education and Evangelization, Social Concerns, Youth, and Community Building. Individual areas of interest and ministry generally fall into one ore more of those categories.

The Council sponsors an annual Discernment Day (or Parish Assembly). At this meeting, our parish dreams are evaluated and we form new initiatives to further address them. At the assembly, every person is invited to discern whether they are called to serve as a representative on the Pastoral Council or one of the implementing committees.

The Chair is selected by the whole council at the meeting following the Discernment Day and serves a one- or maximum two-year term, by agreement of the pastor and the whole council.
