Parish councils and committees share responsibility for specific areas of the parish's life. Some exist only as long as it takes to carry out a given task while others are standard elements in the parish. All provide a way for parishioners to be co-responsible for their parish, its mission and well-being. Each has its own meeting schedule, membership, and task. In all cases, they assist the pastor who has overall responsibility for the parish and its work. The councils and committees listed at right represent only some of the groups in our parish. To inquire about membership, please speak to the pastor, staff member, or a fellow parishioner who serves on a particular council or committee.
