Representative Councils/Committees

Parish Council Stewardship Committee
Finance Committee Evangelization Committee
The Parish Council is composed of the Pastor and four lay members elected by the Parish. The council acts in an advisory capacity to the clergy, and assists in policy formulation in all matters pertaining to the spiritual and financial affairs of the Parish. The council helps to formulate, develop, maintain, and promote the well-being of the Parish community and its members.

"The lay faithful should accustom themselves to working in the parish in close union with their priests, bringing to the Church community their own and the world's problems as well as questions concerning human salvation -- all of which need to be examined together and solved through general discussion. As far as possible the lay faithful ought to collaborate in every apostolic and missionary undertaking sponsored by their own ecclesial family." (Decree on the Apostolate of Lay People #10)
