Parish ministries fit within an umbrella of one of five commissions: Worship, Formation, Children, Outreach and Social. There is also a bridge person between Parish and our Catholic Primary Schools. Each commission (consist with parish volunteers) under leadership of the PPC members, meet six times throughout the year just prior to Pastoral Council to discuss ministry needs and activities. Pastoral Council members serve a three-year term as they focus on guiding the movement of the Body of Christ in the parish.
Members are appointed, serve indefinite terms and meet four times throughout the year.
Finance Council is an appointed parish ministry and, along with Pastoral Council, is one of the two councils mandated by the Diocese for each church parish. The role of the Finance Council is to review the financial statements of the Church, to help make financial decisions related to significant parish business, any active Capital Campaigns and general facility maintenance and repairs.
