The Parish Council, in conjunction with the pastor, sets policies according to the needs of the parish. The Parish council consists of seven members which are either elected or appointed from within the parish community. Each member serves a three-year term. In addition, a representative from appropriate parish organizations may attend parish council meetings. To serve on the parish council one must be a registered, active member of the parish and offer up their name for service when the seats become available in the fall of the year. All parishioners are invited to contact a parish council member with pertinent/relevant concerns which they wish to be addressed during the monthly parish council meeting.

Helps to promotes awareness and offers education on pro-life issues.
