About the Pastoral Council:
Welcome to the Pastoral Council information site. I hope you find the information here useful. We welcome and encourage parishioners and guests interested in our Parish to attend the meetings and share their prayerful thoughts! If you like to contact a member, info is below. Together we share Jesus with our community!

Meetings are every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7pm in the Msgr. McCall Center.  (Except September which is the Pastoral Council retreat)

Our Pastoral Council is a discerning body that represents our parish community. The council collaborates with the Pastor to provide leadership and perspective to living out our parish mission: To know Him and to make Him known. (Were talking about Jesus here J.) Our council makes decisions primarily through discernment and consensus.

The parish elects 3 Members at Large every year for a 3 year term that starts in June. The elections are during the 3rd weekend of May.

Our Executive Team Officers (President, VP, and Secretary) are appointed by council members through a discernment process each September.

Our parish fiscal year is July 1 to June 30.

The Pastoral Council comprises of:

  • 9 Members at Large elected by the parish
  • chairpersons of our standing committees
  • our Pastor
  • a few members appointed by the Pastor.
