The Parish Council consists of selected members from the parish community and ex officio members; namely, the two trustees and the Deacon and Parish Director.


The Parish Council's role is to provide leadership to the local Christian community in a collegial, co-responsible manner that shares talents with other members of the Parish Council. The Council studies the needs of the parish community and works together in discovering and providing resources to meet those needs.


Council members are representative of the total local Christian community. The Council provides the channels of communication between the staff and parishioners.


The Parish Council meets monthly on the second or third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM. On a rotating location basis, the Council will meet with our linked parishes of St. Ann-St. Anna and SS. Peter & Paul-Kiel, as well as our Finance Council. All parishioners are welcome to attend council meetings.
