Pastoral Council

The pastoral council is an advisory group to the Pastor that meets monthly to address the current and future development of parish life. All parishioners are welcome to attend. Pastoral Council members serve for two years. Selection of new council members takes place each spring, when nominations are requested from the parish at large. Those nominated are invited to participate in the process of discerning whom among themselves should serve as replacements for outgoing council members. Council meetings take place at 9:30 a.m. on the first Saturday of the month in the Fr. John Maxwell Conference Room.

For more information contact the Lea Aguilar, Chair of the Pastoral Council by email.

Finance Council

The Finance Council assists the pastor with the budget and in overseeing the financial concerns of the parish. Council meetings take place at 9:00 a.m. on the last Saturday of each month in the Fr. John Maxwell Conference Room. There are openings for people with accounting skills.

For more information contact Bruce Hartman, Chair of the Finance Council by email.
