Parish Council

The function of the parish Council is to provide spiritual leadership by articulating the mission of the parish and seeing that the mission is carried out, by being a model of prayerful community for the rest of the parish, by overseeing parish governance and determine the direction of the mission of the parish, by formulating policy which will implement the mission, and by planning for the future by deciding priorities and evaluating programs and services.
