PURPOSE & FUNCTION
It is important to remember the purpose and function of the Parish Council, which is, in summary, to:
1. Serve as a consultative vision sharing body for the Pastor, focused on the entire ministry of the Parish;
2. Provide Parishioner feedback to the Pastor; and
3. Review annually the implementation and maintenance of the Pastoral Plan, aka the Vision plan.
The Council is comprised of 12 Parishioners as appointed by the Pastor. Unless there are resignations that may disrupt the cadence, four (4) new members are selected annually to replace outgoing members, which members are divided evenly into three (3) groups with staggered three-year terms. Please note that, due to the 2020-21 COVID-interrupted year, term limits were extended for all Parish Council members for an additional year. Please also note that consistent with the bylaws of the School, the president of the School Board will be asked to attend each Parish Council meeting.
If you desire to be considered for any upcoming vacancy on the Parish Council, please contact the Parish office.
