Pastoral Council

Pastoral Council includes six to nine parishioners who meet monthly (except during the summer) to assist and advise Father in his role as spiritual shepherd of the parish community. To this end, they seek input from parishioners, evaluate issues of concern, prayerfully reflect with Father on matters of pastoral importance, make recommendations and offer him counsel.

Peace and Justice Commission

Peace and Justice Commission develops a parish plan and framework for actions and decision-making that is based on Gospel values through self-study and education of parishioners on the principles of Catholic Social Teaching: 
• Life and dignity of the Human person
• Call to family, community, and participation
• Rights and responsibilities
• Options for the poor and vulnerable
• The dignity of work and rights of workers
• Solidarity
• Care for God’s creation
They help the parish community stay informed and updated on Church teaching regarding current Peace, Justice, Integrity of Creation, and Respect Life issues, and promote ways for parishioners to respond appropriately.  
They advocate for:
• Connecting justice with works of charity,
• A more communal and global awareness of problems,
• An understanding of the obligation to share the benefits of God’s creation more broadly,
as they facilitate coordination of parish outreach efforts.
