In order for God’s word to take root, believers must do more than merely listen to it. They must act upon it (1.James 1:17-18, 21b-22, 27). Nourished by the Holy Eucharist, and with a determined heart, how will you choose to use your gifts to serve our parish community?

Parish Pastoral Council
The Pastor and Parish Pastoral Council strive to ensure that the parish is carrying out its stated mission and that the pastoral needs of the parish are met. These include Word, Worship, Community and Service. The Pastor and Council enable and encourage the broadest participation of parishioners in evangelizing, both within the parish and the larger community. It accepts the responsibility of hearing all voices in seeking to discern the will of God in the local community using scripture and the voice of the Church as their guide. The Parish Pastoral Council meets quarterly.
Council Members: James Patton, Beverly Lynn Wilkins, Marjorie Anne Güisao-Wallace, Shirley Patterson, Junius Brown, Jamie Starkey (Chair), Don Connelly
Parish Finance Council
Every parish shall have a Finance Council distinct from the Parish Pastoral Council. Established by the universal law of the church, the Parish Finance Council is regulated by the norms of the Code of Canon Law as well as by those issued by the diocesan Bishop. The Parish Finance Council is to aid the Pastor in the administration of the goods of the parish.
The Parish Finance Council is made up of members of the Christian faithful selected by the Pastor according to the norms of canon law. Its members should be conscious they share in the mission God has entrusted to the church. As they hold an ecclesiastical office, they should be in full communion with the Catholic Church and members of the parish they are to serve. Meetings of this council are held quarterly.
Council Members: Kathleen Ames (Chair), James “Pat” Patterson, Michelle Ferebee
