Pastoral Council

Mission Statement: To serve the entire parish community and assist the Pastor by ensuring that the community’s spiritual needs are met through existing missions, assessing and addressing unmet needs in our community and beyond, and coordinating the talents and energies of parishioners-all to further the evangelizing efforts and spiritual growth of the parish.

Pastoral Council provides the framework through which clergy, religious, and laity can share responsibility. A council is more than an advisory board; it is a leadership community in which Pastor and people share in the decision making of the parish. The council is also a community of service that assumes a special accountability for the life of the parish. The council embodies the belief “we are the church, all of us together, clergy, religious, and laity”.
