It is our purpose, as members of the Pastoral Council, to be a community of disciples, working in close collaboration with our Pastoral Leader, Sister Marlita, along with other communities in the parish; as well as the staff for the good of the parish.  It is our goal to prayerfully discern and carry out the will of God for our parish now and into the future.  We do this by listening to the faithful -- their hopes, challenges and needs.



  • Bring to life the Mission and Vision of our Parish.

  • Remain attentive to being true to the Gospel in making all of our decisions.  We need to ask ourselves "What would Jesus do?"

  • Communicate with the chairs of other parish communities by having a liaison contact these individuals on a regular basis.  This ensures that the Pastoral Council remains the central coordinating body for the multiple activities of the parish.

  • Term limits apply.  Members serve for three years, renewable once.

  • Meet the second Tuesday of the month.
