  5. Certain pastoral staff are ex officio (non-voting) members (Director of Faith Formation, RCIA Director, Music Director)

Parish Elections are held in the Spring, with elected terms being three (3) years

The purpose of the Parish Council is to be the primary consultative body to the Pastor on Parish matters. Each Parish Council meeting is open to the parishioners

Members of the Parish Council also are the primary organizers of the annual Feast of the Epiphany dinner, and they also prepare one of the Friday meals during Lent, serving a vegetarian spaghetti sauce with pasta, salad, and garlic bread.
