Pastoral Council

    The Pastoral Council shares with the pastor and staff the leadership responsibilities of the parish. It interprets the Parish Mission Statement, assesses parish needs, formulates goals and pastoral plans for the parish, and evaluates parish programs and activities. Membership is open to all parishioners. The professional staff of the parish are also members of the Council.

    The Pastoral Council is organized into committees on which any member of the parish may serve.
