SPOTLIGHT ON: Parish Council

The Parish Pastoral Council represents the parish community as a whole and serves in an advisory capacity to the pastor. The mission of the council is to enhance a sense of spirit and community within the parish, and to foster a greater sense of belonging within the body of Christ.

In addition, the council organizes the Parish Ministry Fair to provide parishioners an opportunity to become familiar with or better acquainted with the various organizations/ministries within the parish. The Ministry Fair is staffed by one or two members of each ministry who are available to answer questions and encourage more volunteers to participate.

The council also organizes the Sharing Tree at Christmas time. Through the Sharing Tree, parishioners provide gifts and toiletries for those in need. All ages can participate in this program.

Please contact the parish office at 946-1675 for more information.
