The Parish Council, with the Pastor, is a coordinating and unifying leadership group which enables the individual members of the parish to have access to the processes which guide and support parish life. This is accomplished through Spiritual Formation, Parish Planning, Policy Development and Communication with the parish family and the larger Church. Council meetings are announced in the bulletin and are open to the entire parish.
